  1. Diz are very rough times for gee boys them , still dey will neva have sense to know dat laulau lifestyle ain’t da best for dem..

    Street is tough and only the tough gets going

      • UNIPORT is not in session and no one is on our campus. We have asked all the students to go home according to the Federal Government’s directives. So, for anyone to claim to be our student, we need to confirm.

        “We cannot accept liability of anyone arrested somewhere claiming to be our student. They are not students of University of Port Harcourt.”

  2. I no know how far this matter go last, because like it or yes, the more this boys are arrested, the more our politicians are busy stealing thier own without anyone chasing after them.

  3. The only thing that can help our country is just prayers because the more they are cought more are been recruited into the business. Why can’t young people just do legal business that can last instead they prefer to dupe people which is bad. I pray that God will help us.

  4. The Management of the University of Port Harcourt, UNIPORT, has denied the four individuals arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, for alleged internet fraud, stating that the institution does not breed criminals.😂😂😂😂😂😂
