The remark was made by ICPC Chairman, Ekpo Nta while receiving students of Government Secondary School, Kubwa, Abuja on Tuesday, June 14, 2016, Punch reports.

“You see one Nigerian stealing billions of naira and dollars that could have been used for education and the construction of bridges and the irony of it is that many Nigerians do not see anything bad in it. They justify it,” he said.

“At times, they say it is one-sided; why are you not touching this person? But we ask this question: We have so many armed robbers and kidnappers out there. Have we arrested all the robbers at the same time? It is only when one is caught that he is arrested and that is what is happening in this situation,” he added.

Nta also urged the students to shun corruption in every possible way.
