Ikoyi whistle-blower to EFCC: I’m not mad, I need my money 

▪ Taken to Yaba Psychiatric hospital
▪ He has not been paid his N850m reward —Lawyer
JUST like the drama and surprises that trailed the discovery of $43.5 million, £27,800 and N23.2 million at No. 16 Osborne Road, in Lagos, the matter has taken another dramatic dimension with the whistle-blower dismissing the claims by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, that he had gone mad. Whistle He, however, said he was only disturbed by the failure of the anti-graft agency to pay him the reward for exposing the loot in accordance with the whistle-blowing policy of the Federal Government.
Saturday Vanguard recalls that the government had in 2016 approved a policy on whistle-blowing that aimed at encouraging Nigerians to report financial crimes. The Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, who announced the policy, said anyone, who provided information leading to the recovery of fund would be entitled to not more than five per cent of the recovered sum. However, the revelations about the Ikoyi whistle-blower which were made by his lawyer, Mr. Yakubu Galadima in a chat with Premium Times, yesterday, were contrary to claims by the Chairman of EFCC, Mr. Ibrahim Magu that the person had been paid.
Shouting that he needed his money Magun had at the 7th session of the Conference of State Parties to the United Nations Convention against Corruption, said the whistle-blower had become a millionaire. He said: “We are currently working on the young man because this is just a man who has not seen one million Naira of his own before. So he is under counselling on how to make use of the money and also the security implication. We don’t want anything bad to happen to him after taking delivery of his entitlement. He is a national pride.’’ While puncturing the claims that the whistle-blower had become a millionaire, Galadima said his client had been subjected to unfair treatment despite heeding the call to expose looters. He said the inability of the commission to pay his client the reward after the forfeiture of the money made him to start shouting that he needed his money at the Department of State Security Service, DSS, apartment where he was kept. At that point, the lawyer said his client was accused of being insane, resulting in his relocation to EFCC office  from where he was taken to Yaba Psychiatric Hospital. They said he is mad His words: “The day we went to the office of the then Acting President, they gave him a number that he could reach at any time. So he has been communicating with the Vice- President. Following the threats, they detailed some SSS to be working around him. “Because the guy had always been looking forward to seeing this money and it wasn’t forthcoming, he started shouting. When he started shouting, they said he was mad, that he is having a mental problem. “The SSS people called me and said I should come and carry my luggage. They brought him to the EFCC and abandoned him there. The EFCC people called me that I should come and carry my client. ‘’On getting to the commission’s office, I was informed of my client’s mental illness and plans to take him to the Federal Neuro-Psychiatric Hospital in Yaba. “I said he is not mad, that it is because you people are holding his money that is why he is reacting this way. They insisted that the guy was mad, that they had to take him to a psychiatric hospital. They bundled this man. I said ok if that is how to prove that he is not mad, no problem. We went to the psychiatric hospital in Yaba. “They injected him and said they have to monitor him for a month. They monitored him for a month. The day they were going to release him, the EFCC called me again to come and carry my “critical asset. ‘’ This was a boy I never knew from Adam. I said ok, I went to the EFCC, the guy said he was ok, there was no problem anymore. They handed him over to me three weeks ago.  I pay money into his account on a weekly basis for his upkeep.’’

    Imagine them insulting the person that gave u information to act on and u succeeded.. Now u are insulting the person saying he is mad..and he looks like a person that has not seen 1million before😠😠😠😠😠….yet u still use him to lie to the public just for ur selfish reason…
    That’s how the government of Nigerian See’s its citizens..they see them like slav£s

    Very Useles$ government of lies….

  2. PrinceBrayn Ugochukwu Nsobundu

    and I wish to see you being paid…they will still come to investigate you even after the payment… WHAT A COUNTRY

  3. PrinceBrayn Ugochukwu Nsobundu

    But wait o i think you are mad o for you t blow the whistle and expect Efcc to pay you under this present administration hmm mr man u are not thinking right

    The money is not yet complete. Magu/IGP read paragraph 6 more carefully. Nigerians/others, the right to the truth.

    6. Nickolas Ukachukwu from Nnewi area, close ally of Murtala Nyako former Governor of Adamawa State and Zannah Mustapha former Deputy Governor of Borno State, hijacking and burning our house in Abuja has proved to me that they are desperate to have access to me. If I went to Abuja to make a problem with him, they could have killed me; I would’ve died without knowing about this GT Bank fraudulent suicide loan. One time a northerner, Union Homes banker invited me to Abuja for a meeting about our house. Nickolas Ukachukwu group delayed the meeting; what I received was a plotted fatal accident; I nearly lost my life and our best car, Mercedes 1000 SEL was destroyed; police is aware. MD Abubakar has shared in many of our atrocities from his CP days to AIG to IGP, exposed fully with his DPO Usman in removing the hole in the demarcation wall among other indictments in the ARSON and attempted murder crime.

    Justice Mohammed Nasiru Yunusa, who starved us (injustice) to make our civil suit no. FHC/L/CS/388/2007 endless, is from Borno State. At this point we are confused, EFCC who should be in charge of fraud and criminal activities on our insurance claim based on our Facebook post and other information; the chairman Mr. Ibrahim Magu is also from Borno State. In this circle how can an investor………..?

    We will continue to expose each step they took against us, including how I, Anacho, quickly discovered in 2014 that those Nnewi men in the pictures work with dangerous non -Igbo tribes that own and control the platform of IPOB. Their early graves plotted against youths, especially Igbos, and the gravity of their fraudulent deadly criminality should be exposed without mask.

    Feel free to ask questions; actually it is a hard work information to save lives and punish the criminals, for presidencies, high security and people who matter worldwide Click the photo to read 1 to 9 paragraph. https://www.facebook.com/anachonnojap/photos/a.164448033620190.42834.125331030865224/1613300928734886/?type=3&theater

    What do you expect when no body was arrested just forget about the money by even asking about the money you are jeopardizing your life the money belong to the government. Amaechi is the owner of the apartments were the money was found. Buhari Government is full of one sided fighting of corruption it is easily for the PDP to known who is the owner of the apartment because the owner of the Tower skyscraper is the former national PDP chairman that sold all the apartments in it if you take a look at the people who bought the apartments they are part of the elite in these country Nigeria Amaechi bought the apartment for is Girlfriend instance when the EFCC invade the building which they were told not to invade by the government instance Our executive arms of Government kindly create a panel that is not necessary which they should had left it for EFCC to be in charge but they didn’t Osibanjo head the panel and silent what ever details we Nigerian should known about and fabricate lies that the former President Goodluck Jonathan approved the money to NIA. I don’t just believe anything coming out of these Government Government full of “lie” if they tell you think is better you look at it carefully and do research imaging a minister of agriculture talking with the international community telling them that Nigeria now feed very citizen we now have excess food.

    Don’t give him the money. The whistleblower is a traitor. Of the highest order.
    Four. One. Nine. Together they srrsnge with him . He was unenablebto steal the money or there may be disagreements in sharing formulae that was why he blew the whistle. He is a fowl that will not eat but will scatterit. Ole. Continue to hiding till eternity.
    Given you the money itself is corruption.
    Let him explain how he manage to know that such a huge amount of money is kept in that house. EFCC cannot just give him such amount of money. We are watching any time the money is given many head to court that the whistleblower be brought to court to explain how and when SSW the money being brought there.
    Many awaiting.

    And so during the time of rewards, this man suddenly go dementia? I hope this whistle blowing of a thing is not a hoax? How come the government told the whole world that the man who blew the ikoyi gate scandle money has been paid and now the man is coming out to say that he has not been paid and minister of information whose duty is to inform us of the goings on in the govt will come out to tell us that since he was born, that he has never told a lie before. Now who is telling us lie here; the govt of lai Mohamed or the whistle blower who suddenly turns dementia?

    Is a pity that Apc government is a government of promise and fall, my dear whistleblower i will advice you to be mindful the way you are talking about your share because if you want to sue the federal government they may decide to pay you your compensation and later come arrest you and ask you to explain how did you know that money was in side the building…that you are one of them maybe they refuse to give you that’s why you blow the whistle

  25. Inyang Bassey
