Lai Mohammed Speaks On Why Ikoyi whistle Blower Has Not Been Paid





Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, says the federal government has not been able to pay the five percent commission of the N13 billion recovered from an apartment in Ikoyi, Lagos in April because too many 'whsitleblowers' are now laying claim to being the source of information for the recovery of the money.

Lia Mohammed disclosed this when he paid a courtesy call to Leadership newspapers. 
“It is a bit complicated because more than one person is claiming the money and we do not want to disclose the identity of the whistleblower. We have a very unique situation in our hand at the moment; it is so complex and complicated. One said we should not pay the other and the other one has gone to court. Now we have the authentic whistleblower and fake whistleblower, we hope to find out the real person. Ordinarily, a whistle blower should be anonymous. However, we are working very closely to ensure that such thing never happens again.” he said
Three other persons have come forward to claim that they jointly gave the EFCC the information for the recovery of the money. The three other persons have dragged the EFCC and the Ministry of Finance  before an Abuja High court.
