Whistle-blower policy: Looters now burying stolen funds in backyards, deep forests, cemeteries - Lai Mohammed

The Federal Government has hailed its whistle-blower policy, which has led to the recovery of looted funds in many currencies that may otherwise not have been discovered, describing it as an effective tool of fighting corruption in Nigeria.

In a statement issued in Lagos on Sunday, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said the policy has also shown the depth of support among Nigerians for the fight against corruption.

 
He therefore thanked Nigerians for the enthusiasm and commitment that they have shown in helping the government to tackle the hydra-headed monster of corruption through the useful leads they have been providing to appropriate government agencies.

''Since we launched the whistle-blower policy, we have received immeasurable support from Nigerians. Yes, there is monetary reward for any information that leads to recovery of looted funds, but from what we have seen, most of the Nigerians who have come forward with useful leads were driven by patriotism rather than reward.

''Nigerians, fired by a fervid resolve to help banish corruption from their country, have daily inundated the offices of the appropriate government agencies with valuable information. We have been told how looters have resorted to burying stolen funds in their backyards, in deep forests and even in burial grounds.

''Thanks to whistle-blowers, it is now clear that a rapacious few have pillaged the nation's wealth through a vicious orgy of corrupt practices. Thanks to the useful information provided by Nigerians, it is now obvious that more funds are in the possession of looters than are available to government at all levels to meets its obligations, including paying workers' salaries, providing social amenities, upgrading infrastructure and ensuring the security of lives and property.

''As the looters continue to run helter-skelter, many of them are even abandoning their booty at unusual places, including airports. We want to assure Nigerians that we will not abandon this policy for whatever reason. Instead, we will continue to rejig it to make it more effective as a tool for fighting corruption,'' the Minister said.

He said the recovered looted funds are safe, adding that as soon as the necessary reconciliation process and the litigation in some of the cases are concluded, the government will give a full account of the funds to Nigerians.

Alhaji Mohammed re-assured Nigerians who have useful information on looted funds that the government will protect their identities and also ensure that they get the stipulated reward for their effort.

The EFCC must not relent on their efforts until they make public office holders scared of even attempting to loot.

''As the looters continue to run helter-skelter, many of them are even abandoning their booty at unusual places, including airports. This better than them flaunting stolen funds in our faces.

My question is; how come all these is coming aftet senate rejected Magu as efcc chairman? Honestly, i think the presidency is trying paint magu as a super actor so Nigerians will accept him to become efcc chairman.

The sums so far claimed to have been recovered by the efcc after abandondment are nothing but publicity stunts. Federal government agencies drop those monies in those places. The same Federal government will ask efcc to make dramatised and video-taped recovery of the "abandoned" funds. This is in order to boost the government's anti- corruption war posture, as well as help keep Magu on the efcc seat. No money was abandoned by any looter. APC is a government that began by propaganda and is still being sustained by propaganda.

Since you're now aware that looters incorporated, now buries their loots in forests, cemeteries and other places like that, are you supposed to announce to us? Those doing that are to be arrested immediately, except you're just giving us the preview of next episode of movie, APC, with the theme, EFCC, featuring Magu, produced by Buhari.
