    Each one looks like a big shark and "frustrated" sample - seem to have been hell bent to try their hands at big things. Lady luck deprived them of a good fortune.

    Name of the (in)famous private company also should have been mentioned as without the tacit connivance of it's top officials this sort of pilferage is impossible; also this jugglery might not be an isolated one, IMO 🤔🙏
