Nigerians have reacted to the news. A twitter user, Kay @Kaybaba_Mi tweeted "They are bunch of criminal looting our money."
Another twitter user with the handle @originaldrsam tweeted "Some years back Ike Ekweremadu played dumb at a court hearing. Dino melaye suddenly becomes camatose in order to evade EFCC arrest. Fayose burst into tears on National TV when he was asked to give account of his govt. Now this one has fainted, who is deceiving who?."
