FTFA: The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission received a tip from a whistleblower who reported suspicious activity when they noticed someone moving bags in and out of the apartment, according to a Facebook post. Another source claimed that a "haggard" looking woman in "dirty clothes" sometimes appeared at the apartment building with multiple bags...

The Nigerian government launched its whistleblowing program in December 2016 to combat corruption. The program encourages citizens to report corruption-related offences through a secure online portal. According to the website, people can report violations of financial regulations, mismanagement of public funds, financial malpractice and fraud or theft "deemed to be in the interest of the public."


Something is off here. Who sees people moving nondescript bags into/out of an apartment and thinks, "I'd better tip off the anti-corruption unit, as this is undoubtedly related to violations of financial regulations, mismanagement of public funds, financial malpractice, or fraud/theft"?

They spent the 13 million dollars on new guns, squad cars and bulletproof vests.

The way the article was written was confusing but I think they mean the British pounds totaling a US value of 35,000.

Prince Robert Kwanze Ibaroku, of the Nigerian Oil Ministry, is that you?
I tried to send you money, but NBC Dateline said it was a scam. Nice man, said he caught pedophiles on the Internet.

I don't think they're that much if you buy 'em in bulk.

The rest was wisely spent on blow and hookers.

After $20 million- isn't it time to emigrate?

SeaMan Stainz: What did the cops do with the 21.5 million?


The cops deposited the 10.75 million into a community improvement fund.

In other news, the director of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, the Minister of Information, the Mayor of Lagos, the Chief of Police, and the local state Governor and military commanders all just purchased new villas and Mercedes SUVs. Through their own hard work and diligence, mind you.

I believe in Canada you can get a similar payout for exposing Tax cheats. Assuming you're referring to America, I'm surprised it's apparently not done in the U.S.

$20M would be pretty much my minimum "Fark you, I'm spending the rest of my life in a non-extradition tropical paradise" amount.
