|Whistleblowers only get paid for recovered funds and not for exposing suspected illegitimate fundsâ AGF, Abubakar Malami clarifies by Godday Jubilee: 11:25 am On June 29, 2020|
The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, has said that whistleblowers are only paid their commissions for recovered funds and not for just exposing suspected looted funds.
Malami came out to make this clarification while reacting to a letter by one Aliyu Lemu, Esq. purportedly written on June 22 on issues revolving around the payment of a whistleblower’s fees.
Lemu in his letter which went viral over the weekend, claimed his client, John Okupurhe, had exposed $1billion (over N387billion) hidden in a bank by a Federal Government agency to the office of the Attorney General and was told that he will be paid a commission of the money if it is credible.
Lemu in his letter, claimed the Office of the AGF had not honored its part of the deal.
However, in a statement released by his media aide, Dr Umar Gwandu, the AGF stated that Whistleblowers are only paid their Commission when the suspected looted funds have been recovered.
According to the Minister, the recovery of such funds is not only about exposing the existence of certain assets in an account purported to have belonged to an agency of the government.
The statement went on to enumerate the procedure for the engagement of a whistleblower or recovery agent as it relates to the Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation
