i miss nigeria

Last time when I called the owner of the so-called fake India temple in Nigeria, he asked me to bring dollars as if I pick it on street in Dallas. His poster should be removed from the walls. I confirmed his entire information from my friends in India, all are fake. Fellow Nigerians and world people be warned, dont get into 419 hand Send this message to as many as possible people world wide. Adeola Odekun, I have joined U. Tell the world, he is fake
