    I think this is a serious matter and the law enforcement agencies should get to the root of the matter.

    Well, what can we say about these sets of legal robbers? They want to go home with millions of naira while it took blackmail from the Nigeria workers and the fear of the general election for them to pass the N18,000.00 minimum wage. They should not be allowed.
