By far the biggest news last week was the reports of former EFCC boss Nuhu Ribadu's visit to the home of the late Gani Fawehinmi to console with the departed luminary's family.In fact it was further reported that he even visited the mortuary were he paid his last respects in a more direct,physical and intimate manner.
Considering the fondness Gani had for Nuhu,the extreme emotions dispayed by the former EFCC man should not surprise anybody.However,the point also is that most of us actually thought Nuhu was on exile to escape from some imminent danger or answer to certain issues raised by his primary employers.
When the news of Nuhu's visit first broke,the initial report was that the security agencies were on the look out for him,but that has since changed.Today's papers now report that nobody was ever interested in arresting him since he was never declared wanted in the first place.
When confronted by journalists about his bold actions,Nuhu was qoted as saying,'I am fearless,but not reckless'.
