ditto. but he is worse than a moron. if one cannot read and differentiate nigeria from tunisia. he is worse than it.
smh......such a fool

Ousted President Ben Alis treasure.

Who is fooling who? Members of the opposition that allows this video to go on air are all riding in the same plane with former president. In one to two years from now please somebody should check their ward droves, bank accounts and see what is there, because they are not really fighting for the common man but rather for there own selfish interest.

You idiot

You moron. what has this video got to do with Nigeria????

The one and only salvation

The one and only salvation for the nation you call Nigeria is to burn it down and start all over again.

Nike Air Jordan

The Knicks are one time afresh at the bargaining table bargain Nike Air Jordan 6 with the Nuggets in an try to make a deal that would convey Carmelo Anthony to New York, as asserted by multiple reports. The newest incarnation of a promise trade would furthermore engage the Timberwolves, and would agitate out like this: New York would get Anthony, while Wilson Chandler and Eddie Curry's expiring agreement would be going back to Denver. Nike Air Jordan 4 The Nuggets would furthermore obtain Corey Brewer and a first around preliminary choose from Minnesota, which the T'Wolves would stop in exchange for the Knicks' Anthony Randolph.This would conspicuously be a illusion of the deal for the Knicks, and rather of a nightmare for the Nuggets -- particularly when you address how much more they could have gotten back for Anthony if they had Air Jordan Fusion proceeded to chase the 15-player deal that was long rumored to be in the works engaging the Nets and the Pistons. FanHouse's own Chris Tomasson accounts that a source close to the Timberwolves states Minnesota is mostly a bystander as Denver and New York haggle over Anthony, and furthermore that the Timberwolves aren't getting sufficient in the deal as it's actually being reported.Multiple causes furthermore report that the trade isn't close to being accomplished, and while it's clear that Denver doesn't desire to misplace its franchise contestant to free bureau without obtaining not less than certain thing Nike Air Jordan 5 back in come back, this specific deal would be nearly that bad.

My brothers,my sisters,if we say dat d government should do some,i bet it would start from you,cause who are d government?,its u and i,so think of wat we can do for nigeria,than wat she has 4 us.Think please.

Lets get this thing moving.

Nigeria must awake and free its self from the satanic grips of the gluttonous parasitic scoundrels. The National assembly needs to be completely obliterated. All past and present presidents, and governors deserve publicly execution and their properties returned to the people. fuck the courts right now. Aso rock needs to be burned down to the ground. We need a new beginning not the demon infested Aso rock. All these nations that are revolting now are not close to the level of corruption, degeneration, poverty and wickedness of the Nigerian shameless and irresponsible ruling class. Wake the f up nija. Lets get this thing moving.

Pathetic, disgraceful, wicked, demonic, obscene................and so on.I'm sure we have many more of his cronies' home like this his palace.

Just imagine this; we have thousands of homes of politicians, army generals, and government officials like this lunatic's in Nigeria.

Does anyone still need a reason why Africa is backward and referred to as the DARK CONTINENT in the western world?

What a shame a continent that has everything, that should be paradise on earth. SAD

wow this would make ibb and obj to make move...give capital to b

wow this movies would make ibb and obj and the likes to make fast move...they would start giving capital to their brothers like ?gote, who they know are conversant with ways to do businesses with interest, and give guarantee with acres of land; or they would try to waste some of their stolen money by being election sponsors of hooligans for their selfish interests. ibb thinks he needs no banking bcos he knows how to fight with guns, so is obj and danjuma. obj is the worst, he never even allow mosquitoes to pass through his door mouths, if mosquitoes try, they are salughtered and labeled the armed robbers tormenting ogun state. ibb used to catch mosquitoes and slaughter and eat their meat for no evidence sake like one old ugandan president. they and their body guards with their guns are the security of their wealth. one day for the macro-armed-robbers with immunities, other days for the owners of the wealth. let them watch the movies un-folding. we will break away from their odd and spiritual bounds called a country with going to their verious houses and taking all that are ours with vidoeing how they happened...their children should know about this future and watch the movies "VIDEO: Tunisian TV Shows Ousted President Ben Ali's Hidden Treasures we are watching on" SR

IF IT WERE TO BE FOUND IN NIGERIA

If it were to be found in Nigeria,the news will go this way. The residence of the ousted former president of Nigeria/Olusegun Obasanjo/Ibrahim Babangida/Abdulsalami Abubakar/Sani Abacha etc etc were searched by combined team of the police and Efcc oficials.
The search which has lasted 7 days and still ongoing as we speak has shown that large sums of money were hidden in some unsuspecting areas in the building.The Police PRO for FCT Mr onye egbuwara isi confirmed the story but could not disclose the actual amount found,which he said are mostly in 1000 naira notes and some foreign currencies. The case will be tranfared to the anti-Fraud unit of the police HQ for further investigations he said.

I HAVE A DREAM !!!!

I have a dream ....

That one day (IMMINENT) Nigerians will watch live on NTA a video (in HD) similar to this of Babangida, Obasanjo, Abachas, rtd Gen. Abubakar, Tinubu, Ibori e.t.c hilltop mansions and stashed loots, Turai, Patience jewelery stash.......

I have a dream......

That the video will be made in to a powerful audio/visual teaching aid to be used in teaching the new Nigeria kindergarten school children "What NOT to be when you grow up" and the fear of God.......

I only pray African leaders

I only pray African leaders can learn to have pity for the citizens.. This is just too much to be owned by a Dying old leader not to talk of an hailing one. Africans should stand against corruption.

Who knows, they may have one of this types of cat -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rZEgvh_u_Ts

If it encrusted with diamonds such as James Bond Ernst Stavro Blofeld's cat, then even better!

That's how we do it in da hood!

@Jabolo "Yeparipa, see 500 Euro note yanfu yanfu. Poor man no even know say dat kind money dey for circulation. But sha, if na Naija, everyone go don "settle" quick quick including cameraman and na only cockroach dem go film inside cupboard."

Man! you made my day. You read my thoughts. I couldn't have said it any better. I was about mistaking the clip for one of those r kelly  r'n'b video clips.I bet Attiku, Babangida, Obj, Kastina,Tinubu, Turia, Abacha's clips will be a lot more  dirty down low! 

Folks all their innocent assurances aren't worth a bucket of warm spit!

Theirs is like that of the domestic goats which are known to be stubborn animals. In a traditional African market, traders wield long sticks as a deterrent to market goats, which roam with the intention of stealing from unsuspecting sellers. No matter how hard the trader tries, the market goat keeps coming at its target. It is sleek, calculating and seemingly gentle, but is irredeemably destructive. It never stops to roam until it can carry out a stealth raid on its victim. Wise traders are never deceived by the meekness of this familiar animal that is capable of turning the day's gain into significant loss. The success of the goat in every market is simply remarkable, and it thrives on three elements forgetfulness, forgiveness and mostly lack of determination on the part of the traders.

Nigeria could still be a great place but the wicked leaders are suffocating the people. The leaders now live in gated homes and drive bullet proof cars. Some of them come across as prudent men but one can't help but ask who or what else is living in their heads? How can one explain stealing so much money that one can't spend living fifty times the normal life time over?!

Until the population begins to make life unbearable for them, nothing will change. Make corruption and election rigging crimes punished by death for now (desperate times call for desperate measures)

It must be a wonderful pleasure for the average Tunisian seeing all this unfold..when will all those nigeria con artist, confident thugs and sometimes eloquent tricksters have their turn?!For this day i long and will give anything that it comes!

Our Own Looters Are Now Scampering

Our own Looters are now scampering to hide their loot in anticipation of similar fate.They have started hiding jewelries, cash and properties under friends, families and associates names with intent to deceive Nigerians, But it would not work because when the time comes and we come for their jugulars, it would be a full "blitz" that will run over all our past and present "Kleptos",accomplises and maybe even their dogs and cats depending on our mood.

I like you sense of humor!

All of you are screaming about those shiny jewelry, did you see those bottles of drinks in the safe. Outwardly, he is a devout muslim.

I have been seriously thinking of why did he lock up the bottles of Alcohol in a safe. Am I just assuming they contain alcohol? They must be as expensive as those diamond encrusted platinum shields!

I would not even lock up Dom Perignon!

Go to Minna Castle or Oghara, if Nigeria will not beat this 'pathetic' display of wealth!

Goodluck to our African leaders!

PRIMITIVE ACCUMULATION

its so funny bcos,has anyone thought of this .....for anything we see in that video,they have atleast x10 outside the country.maybe cash is accepted in the after life.PURE STUPID PRIMITIVE SELFISH BLIND GREED.

LEADERS AS LOOTERS

Africa my Africa, Africa of whom my mother sings. How come these people are senseles

@cleanbreak, @tOPE aMUSAN

@tOPE aMUSAN
LOL. Most of you poor folks will do worse when you have access to power.

When judgment day comes the poor folks will thank God they never had access to power when they see what will happen to Nigeria politicians and elites and their families.

@cleanbreak.
I am surprised that you missed out the name of Dame Patience Jonathan, the equally DEMONICALLY GREEDY and jewelry hungry wife of the man you have been so intent on returning to power even after admitting his INCOMPETENCE .................................

All Nigeria looter politicians including Mr Clean himself (rtd Gen Buhari) and their families (immediate and extended) and their cronies will all face God's wrath on judgment day. The traditional rulers who gave them chieftancy titles, pastor who took their blood money for thanksgiving after brazenly rigged elections will not be left out ! The coming judgment will be clinical leaving no one out!

Election Vibes & Athem

If you vote for Jonathan, U vote 4 CORRUPTION

If U supports Jonathan, you support CORRUPTION

If you pray for Jonathan, U pray 4 for CORRPTION

If U PDP with Jonathan, you PDP with CORRUPTION

If you like Jonathan, U likes CORRUPTION

Vote Jonathan out, vote CORRUPTION out

Beware! CORRUPTION kills!

RE: DEMONIC GREED

@Curious1

I am surprised that you missed out the name of Dame Patience Jonathan, the equally DEMONICALLY GREEDY and jewelry hungry wife of the man you have been so intent on returning to power even after admitting his INCOMPETENCE.

Is it that Jonathan does not number among Nigerian politicians and past & present leaders (would rather say “rulers”) driven insane by demonic greed?

Is it that Jonathan should be spared of that judgment day that you observed is fast coming for such rulers?

Is it that Jonathan was not also imposed like all the other people you mentioned their names: the Abachas, the Tinibus, the Obasanjos etc?

Again, uncle Jona is alleged to be worth well over N259 million (in his own asset declaration, which many complain was a gross under declaration of his actual worth)- money which even if he hadn’t touched his salaries all his days as a lecturer or a Deputy/Governor of Bayelsa and as VP and now President of Nigeria could not have accumulated to such staggering amount. He is also not known to have set shop anywhere before or inherited any legacy from his parents or written a bestseller as an ivory tower egghead; maybe that kind of stupendous asset base is not your definition of obscene wealth, huh?

So why the tactical exclusion of Jonathan and wife; is it because they are both “God-sent” as the new faces of corruption and looting in Aso Rock and therefore we should be looking the other way while the rape goes on?

Now, you can imagine what a wonderful combination that will make, with the wife bringing along her demonic greed and illiteracy and the husband bringing along his incompetence and cluelessness; what do you think we'd end up becoming as a nation? Isn’t it something that will be worse than Tunisia or Imelda Marcos’ Philippines? I leave you to do the math. And do have a nice day as chew on that.

DEMONIC GREED.

Just look at the OBSCENE load of cash and jewelries !!
No wonder he had a heart attack !!
Government money in government house LOL

It's the same DEMONIC greed that has driven Nigerian politicians and past rulers insane !
e.g Obasanjo, IBB in their hilltop mansions. Judgment day is fast approaching for these people and their families !!!

Worse still they groom their children not only to inherit the wealth but become rulers and kingmakers e.g all those AC, PDP imposed family member candidates, Mohammed Abacha, Tinubu's wife, Obasanjo's daughter. One day go be one day !

How much money does one man really need ??
Do they really believe their children and grand children will inherit these OBSCENE wealth and live happily ever after ??

boy oh boy/ i believe dis is

boy oh boy/
i believe dis is chicken change compared 2 ibb/obj/abacha/tinubu/ and all other greedy dealers in naija..
wen we do av a proper leader come 2011/ all dis people shld b exposed
xx

Nigerian looters have 100 x..more.

IBB, Abacha, OBJ, UmaruDiko, Ibori etc. all have loots 100 x more than you see here.

HE WILL NOT GET TO ENJOY IT

THE GUY IS IN A COMA IN SAUDI HOSPITAL AFTER SUFFERING A HEART ATTACK LAST WEEK. TALK ABOUT THE LAW OF KARMA.

OBSCENE!!!

This is very obscene and nauseating. I can bet that what you have seen here is minced-meat compared to our very own dealers (not leaders)... Do you guys remember the pictures circulated a couple of years back showing Yar'Adua's infant son faffing around with wads of N1000 notes???

Nothing has been heard in the public domain about the stockpile of liquid currency stashed by previous Nigerian leaders and I am sure even if there was an expose' everyone involved would have simply packed their own and filmed the roaches like jobolo rightly pointed out!

The writing is on the wall...
