How Justice System Guard the Rich and Crucify the Poor in Nigeria

What a poor man experiences in the justice system corridor remains more worrisome when a different treatment is given to another "rich" fellow with the same offense. See how justice system is manipulated in favour of one party

Justice in Reality
The saying “all are equal before the law”, means the law that binds the poor, binds the rich remains questionable in some part of the World today, Nigeria in particular. The fact that equality before the law justifies fairness and justice on paper, it does not manifest in Nigeria's case where the rich get away with crimes (financial in particular) while the poor is condemned and crucified for similar act in Nigeria's case where the rich get away with crimes (financial in particular) while the poor is condemned and crucified for similar act. 

Equality before the law is a basic right in the Nigerian constitution - where the content emphasized on the protection of human right at all cost. This rights has therefore been manipulated by certain people in the country regardless of what the law says. For instance, political office holders (expected to be public servant) who seem to be covered with immunity clause commit financial related crimes and are subjected to little or no persecution.The reality does not seem to justify the ideal - see the few suitable cases below

Recently, a Nigerian senator was accused of certificate forgery, he wasn’t arrested, rather the affected institution's Vice Chancellor was invited to the senate house to clear the allegation which was apparently cleared. Dr. Sunday Adeyeye was accused of same allegation from the same tertiary institution and was arrested. A boy, Tope Abiodun, age 23, was sentenced to death by hanging for stealing a Smartphone valued at N87,000. Abiodun was arrested when he was just 18 years old and was convicted 5 years after he was arrested. In the same vein, Moses Akatugba, a 24 year old secondary school student was sentenced to death by hanging for stealing a mobile phone and recharge cards worth N112, 000 with a toy gun. Whereas Chief Olabode George was sentenced to 2 years imprisonment for looting billions of Naira, likewise other Politician that were able to sweep the issue under the carpet still roam around freely.
Justice Seeker Challenges in Nigeria
If a man that stole N112, 000 was sentenced to death by hanging, what more can be done to punish that which looted billions of Naira from the national treasury? I believe such should experience a form of crucifixion (or something more terrifying). This am sure will scare fellow office holders from doing same. But in reality, it seems as if harsh judgment is meant for the poor while the lenient ones are for the rich. "If there must be justice, let there be equality"- It is therefore highly unjustifiable for a poor man to suffer severely for an offense while the rich enjoys preferential treatment in a case much more injurious to the state's growth and development.
