Why Returning to School with Shovel and Digger May be Lucrative

A number of students of Chukwuemeka Emeka Odumegwu University (COOU) live off campus. Most people rush to Luxury apartments in Otoko, Umudioka and junction while some others chill out in Achalla, Ukwulu and some other quiet areas.

With the latest information from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFFC) and other government agencies that looters of public funds buried the money in graves, open field, farmland and even septic tanks, it seems it may now be more lucrative to live in Achalla and Village one where you see acres of farmland and graves in the open. Having a shovel and serious digger in your room could now be the wisest thing to do.

Some students are now advising their friends to buy shovels and diggers while returning from Easter break because you may not know the fortune that is buried behind your apartment or in the farm near your lodge.

Even those beautiful lodges in Otoko, Umudioka and junction could be gold mine especially rooms on the ground floor (after all you may not know who your Land lordโ€™s friend is or what currency was buried under your room).

Relying onย  whistle blower’s tip-off, the EFFC recovered N250,558,670 (Two Hundred and Fifty Million, Five Hundred and Fifty Eight Thousand, Six Hundred and seventy Naira) as it was being changed into hard currency by a Bureau de Change operator in Balogun Market, Lagos on the 10th of April. The most recent and trending is the N13 billion of naira recovered in an apartment in Ikoyi Lagos by the EFCC on Wednesday, April 15.

So donโ€™t doubt this story. Just know that not everybody you see moving around with shovel, digger, hoe and cutlass is an agricultural farmer. He or she could be a gold digger or better put, looted fund farmer.

    EFCC should continue investigation to find out the secret places where public fund looters hide money. On the other hand,students should report to the police if any is found

    I must confess, despite the amusing approach made use in writing this article, it stands as a very invaluable advice to us students both on camp and off campus, after all, there is no harm in trying. With the rate and ways by which our political leaders and their cohorts steal, launder and embezzle public funds, and more recently, hide them in places that are absurd, any monies found hidden in complicated places like farmlands, graves and other strange areas should be confiscated by the founders and used for both personal and community development. I will certainly buy my own shovel and digger this weekend to start my own ‘money rescue operations’. Thank you sir for this very nice piece, more ink to your pen.

  34. Ginika Gloria Chioma

    This is the act of greediness. corruption is now a routine in Nigeria. EFCC should continue their investigation to be able to find out more secret places in houses or lodges (047) group 6. 2016054055

  35. prior to federal government’s announcement to pay wrestle blowers, people weren’t much keen to exposing evil, but with the tip, a lot of people are working around the clock to ensure they expose evil in high places… It is a smart move by the government I personally applaud them for that.(45)group 6

  36. The obnoxious trend of burying money in the ground and hiding them at empty houses has risen alarm over months.. The government decision to pay a certain percentage to wrestle blowers, who help recover looted funds have proven to be an Avenue of making money by all and sundry.. It suffices to say that the federal government is devoted to wiping away penury in the country (39)group 6

  37. The system is so corrupt that even the so called
    “whistle browsers” and the government herself may have hand in the money so lucky is he who discovers it.

  38. the shovel and cutlass is for those that say in achalla and village one

  39. This sort of corruption is peculiar to Nigeria and other third world states who present a bad image of themselves but it is only ironical that they are the ones complaining of media imperialism and imbalance in news flow.Be it as it may it now behooves us to revisit The graves of our father’s and anyone across the road because you never can tell who buried what
