The controversial whistle blower behind the Ikoyi 13B Recovery has quietly left the shores of Nigeria after collecting a sum of N421million from the Federal Government.
In a report by Vanguard, the Ikoyi whistle blower, who provided information leading to the discovery of $43.5 million, £27,800 and N23.2 million at No. 16 Osborne Road, Ikoyi, Lagos, got his funds without a third party transaction.
It was further reported that the money was paid to the beneficiary by officials of the Ministry of Finance, while his current location remains undisclosed and unknown by the public.
However, the payment made by the Ministry of Finance, was not the total amount due the Ikoyi whistle-blower.
There was also no information as when the next tranche would be paid to the whistle-blower in his current location.
The whistle-blower had earlier rejected the payment of N325m from the Federal Government insisting on his N860m commission.
