People may bashed me for this comment, but if we are honest as a people and we want a good,sound and virile country which we can all be proud of. I think these kind of judgement required strong condemnation from us all without playing politics. At the end of the day it will affect us all. We can't eat our cake and have it.

setting the mases against the law officers is wrong.My question is can our judges enact new laws to try offenders?.

At least this one get till the end. We have 10 years graft case still under trail. If you doubt ask them in Abia state. Until we introduce jungle justice for corrupt persons, you would see many of these atrocities called judgement.

This is not the fault of the judge... it's the fault of the Administration of Criminal Justice act.. the bail can't exceed 100k.. it will remain so until the Act is reviewed

That's because the judges are corrupt themselves!!! You give a man a 100k fine or a year in prison for stealing 200 million naira? And a man on the street who steals a cup of garri to feed himself gets mugged and burned up? We need to all wake up and smell the coffee! Our so called leaders are the problems. They cannot fight corruption when they are corruption personified |!

The Bank should appeal and NBA should review the case as well. In the history of Nigeria, i have never witnessed all these strange judgement coming from all angles. Nigeria future is shaking.

Yea, this is the CHANGE, what were you expecting ma'm?

This post shows how dull and unintelligent people are appointed as Advisers in this clueless government!

Pitching the masses against judges in something you know little or nothing about is crass ignorance!

First, you have to see the charge the banker was arraigned on and then the laws regulating the charge as well as the sentence if the accused is guilty.

Until you review the above, your conclusion will be warped as usual for an SA!

No sir, judges don't enact law. Direct your request to house of Rep or Senate.

Why would they join the fight when their other name is CORRUPTION.

I hope I never see the inside of a court room in my life I will tell the judge my mind.

The corrupt bastards are the root cause of our problems in this country

The judiciary needs a complete overhaul.
I suggest we sack them all and bring in foreign judges till new ones are trained and put in post.
Filthy crooks.!
