Acting Chairman, Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC), Mr Ibrahim Magu, said the court was responsible for the regular delay in the payment of financial rewards to whistle-blowers.
Magu stated this in Makurdi, the Benue State capital during his visit to the commission’s office.
“Whistle blowing is working very well and we are paying. What delays the payments sometimes are the rudiments of the courts,” the anti-graft agency boss said.
He explained that there was a paradigm shift in the attitudes of the politically exposed persons in terms of lavishing money on parties, adding:
“EFCC is all eyes and ears; wherever and whenever they organise such ostentatious parties, they will be fished out and prosecuted, be it within or outside the country.”
