The lawyer, who spoke with journalists on the premises of the Lagos State High Court in Ikeja on Friday, described as untrue the claim by the acting Chairman of the EFCC, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, that the whistle-blower had been paid.

A statement on Thursday by the spokesman for the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, quoted Magu as saying in Vienna, Austria, that the “young man” who blew the whistle had already become a millionaire.

“We are currently working on the young man because this is just a man who has not seen N1m of his own before.

“So, he is under counseling on how to make good use of the money and the security implication.

“We don’t want anything bad to happen to him after taking delivery of his entitlement. He is a national pride,” Magu was quoted as saying.

But Galadima claimed that the whistle-blower, his client had been abandoned, saying the EFCC did not even know his whereabouts let alone counseling him.

“The EFCC does not even know the whereabouts of my client. He is presently living from hand to mouth having been abandoned by the commission. I did not receive 5% from EFCC IKoyi Whistle blower debunks claim
