  1. Oh Allah see what hpyn in my country Nigeria a seven people stealin only one goat nig. Police taking the case seriously some a stealin over and over trilion not million noting can hpn 4 them. Pls nigerian police and nigeria judiciarys change dis attituted.

  2. Stealing is evil and must be condemned in great terms. However, i have a little reservation to the case in focus. Why must it be that when a poor is involved in a theft of whatever magnitude from the rich, the case is handled with uppermost seriousness but if its the case of the rich vs government, it is curtailed? this is great injustice and corruption. It must not just be condemned in great terms as we always hear and after which nothing else is done, but must be CONDEMNED AND ACTED UPON. NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW!

  3. Wetin Goat they do for Goverment house in the first place, abi na so the Governor like Goat meat, stealing is wrong we know,but such news should not have come out from a Goverment house, it shows the level of poverty in Osun ,its an embarrassment to the common man in Osun state, what about the rich that steal millions everyday.the Governor should use his office to free those men and possibly provide them with sustainance.

  4. i suspect this aregbesola self. na only him dem dey still hin thing? last time na hin phone them steal,now na him goat. e bi like say something hiden dey behind all thses kain thing the man hand no clean.

  5. This is serious stupidity , ogbeni Weitin , na only U? Last time we heard dat one ex-convict stole ur handset &4dat reason he was sentenced to 45yrs jail wif hard labor, now we ar hearing again dat seven people stole a goat ,d qtn is how? When &Whr ? I av a great hatred on dis kind of story ,very soon we will hear dat someone again steal ur dog &all ur domestic animals ,i dnt even knw when d governor became ”fulani danrandanran” ? Anyway I still need to say dat d act of stealing shld be condemned at all cost &means irrespective of what is missing ,do not use wrong to judge wrong ,its bad to say bcos some political office holders are stealing billion or trillion &yet they are living without goin to jail &that has given anyone a yardstick to steal. People that are stealing shld stop stealing irrespective of d size or value of d thing

  6. Seven people, one goat, is it in the Govt House? Where were ur security details Oh Gov? Ur handset was stolen, wat do u use the billions u are given for security. Are u sure u are secured Chief Security Officer? U’re only prosecuting ‘thiefs’ wit all seriousnes, all ur political appointees are they saints? Wat of d past administration? Pls we want tangible news frm Osun.
