He said, “Can any Nigerian do this in Benin or any other African countries and go unpunished.
“Just look at the giant of Africa, a third world like us came in and use us as a Kunfu sand bag.”

“We know how many Nigerians are serving prison terms or have been executed for crimes in China. Our laws must be respected too,” he said.
