FG Says Whistleblowers Have Aided Recovery Of US$151m, N8bn

The Federal Government said its policy on whistle-blowing has started yielding results as it recovered US$151 million and N8billion in looted funds so far.





Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed disclosed this in a statement issued in Lagos yesterday.

Alhaji Mohammed said the looted funds, did not include the $9.2 million in cash allegedly owned by a former Group Managing Director of the NNPC, Andrew Yakubu also said to be recovered through a whistle-blower.

He said the funds “were recovered from just three sources through whistle-blowers who gave actionable information to the office of the Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation.”

According to the statement, the biggest amount of $136,676,600.51 was recovered from an account in a commercial bank, where the money was kept under a fake account name, followed by N7billion and $15 million and another N1billion from different persons.

The Minister reminded Nigerians of the financial reward aspect of the policy, saying “If there is a voluntary return of stolen or concealed public funds or assets on the account of the information provided, the whistle blower may be entitled to anywhere between 2.5% (Minimum) and 5.0% (Maximum) of the total amount recovered.”

Well done Whistlers!

Can't get over that "small big" house with all that money!
And Oga put air conditioners to be cooling the money. The image is still with me. And I keep wondering how many more of these houses are scattered all over the country.

And how many of these houses Diezibaby has.

Dear Stella,you're wrong and don't know how it woks. Money recovered are exhibits in courts and cannot be touched until the prosecution of the case. And thereafter,the money is returned to the federal account.

Why do they categorical state it as being 'recovered'. For you to say someone 'stole'means all due processes have been followed and the case verified by the court. If not they should stop saying recovered looted funds when actually the court is yet to determine if actually the money was stole.
