What should be done to Diezani af­ter she re­turns loot?

Diezani Ali­son-Madueke, for­mer Petroleum Min­is­ter un­der for­mer Pres­i­dent Good­luck Jonathan’s ad­min­is­tra­tion is to for­feit the sum of $153,310,000 to the Fed­eral gov­ern­ment. The funds were al­legedly looted and stashed in the banks. Ac­cord­ing to the court r

Maryam Mo­hammed, 34, IDP, Bama, Borno State he money she stole be­longs to the Nige­rian peo­ple and even if she re­turns it, she has al­ready be­trayed the trust of the peo­ple she served and God will def­i­nitely pun­ish her for that. I can­not imag­ine how your con­science will al­low you to gain a po­si­tion of power and then take ad­van­tage of the pub­lic like that. If she has or in­tends to re­turn the stolen

Tfunds, then af­ter­wards she should be brought to jus­tice be­fore the courts and get a min­i­mum sen­tence of two years in prison. Okuma Solomon, 27, un­em­ployed f she is truly re­morse­ful for her ac­tions and re­turns the money, she served this na­tion so I think she de­serves to be par­doned for what she has done. I am not a lawyer but I be­lieve the ju­di­ciary knows best how to han­dle her case, so what­ever course of ac­tion they choose is okay with me. We are

Iall hu­man and make mis­takes, some worse than oth­ers, so if she is sorry for what she has done, that is what mat­ters. Ifeanyi Eze, 34, de­signer he law will de­ter­mine what her pun­ish­ment should be. What she did is cor­rup­tion, so even if the law says she should be sen­tenced to death, then so be it, that is why the con­sti­tu­tion is there. But again, why should there be a pos­si­bil­ity of her go­ing scot­free when I am here suf­fer­ing be­cause of her self­ish ac­tions?

TAbra­ham Au­gustin, 25, un­der­grad­u­ate he masses have suf­fered and the coun­try is in the sit­u­a­tion it is now be­cause of what these peo­ple have done. Once she has re­turned the money and has been taken to court, the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment should use her as a scape­goat so that any other per­son with in­ten­tions to steal pub­lic funds will re­mem­ber her as a les­son. She should be locked up for a span of ten years and seize all the prop­er­ties she ac­quired with the stolen funds.

TAli Habu, 34, me­chanic irst of all, when she re­turns the money, it should be used for pur­poses that will ben­e­fit each and ev­ery Nige­rian. Diezani should be pun­ished for her crimes ac­cord­ing to the law. She is a hu­man be­ing too and so not above it. If she is to be im­pris­oned, then she should also have the right to bail too. All I want is for ev­ery per­son, re­gard­less of who he or she is to be charged for his or her crimes ac­cord­ingly with­out ex­cep­tions.
