A 68billion Naira Theft has been perpetrated by Omaidu in connivance with Alhaji K.B. kabiru, Godswill Onyegwa, and the duo of Ben and Oliver (still at large).
These culprits have allegedly hacked into the mains server of a second generation bank and transferred the sum of sixty eight billion, and twenty eight million Naira into different accounts for personal gains.
Our worry is reflected in the fact that we cannot seem to understand the rationality behind such irrational act of stealing by crook and by false means.
The senior pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Centre, Dr. Paul Eneche puts it right when he asserted in one of his sermons that, ” The Crave for Money has dug the Grave of Many”.
The above is to my mind, the picture of so many Nigerians who have determined to do nothing else but to Keep amassing ill-gotten wealth in a bid to attain the social class of the rich and to bridge the gap between the rich and the poor which unfortunately keeps widening each day.
Our criticism lies in the fact that these individuals shy away from the negative resultant effect of wealth acquired by illicit means, thereby subscribing to the Machiavellian philosophy of ‘.. The end justifying the means’.
It is this dangerous philosophy of wealth acquisition that now drives many prominent men and women, with an inclusion of so many of our political and religious leaders who now continuously abuse power even in the corridors of Power of our Nation, Nigeria. What a sorry pity!
