Even when no one is pursuing, those who are guilty are always on the run, looking for where to hide.
According to reports, a ex-minister, Segun Aganga, PDP chieftain, Tony Anenih and the immediate past Governor of Benue state, Gabriel Suswam have all departed Nigeria on a British Airways flight out of the Abuja’s Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport possibly to avoid getting caught.
The three were last seen boarding the BA flight scheduled for an 8am at the Abuja airport.
Sahara Reporters learnt that more party officials and President Goodluck Jonathan’s aides, ministers and several appointees have either fled or planning to flee the country, afraid that President Muhammad Buhari will probe the administration of Jonathan and jail those found guilty of corruption.
Last week, the Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke traveled on the same flight with Buhari to London, while on the six hour trip she made several attempt to start a conversation with President Buhari, but the respected leader, known for his no-nonsense stance on corruption, rebuffed all her entreaties.
It is not known if she ever returned to Nigeria after that encounter.
Governor Suswam's wife has reportedly left to Houston in the US to avoid getting caught up in the sweep.
