The chairman of the Presidential advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), Itse Sagay, says the person who blew the whistle on the N13bn found in an Ikoyi flat isn’t “sufficiently stable” to handle his N860 million reward.
Reacting to the alarm raised by the whistleblower’s attorney on the delay in paying his client’s reward, Sagay said the person will “almost run mental” if the cash is paid to him without correct measures.

He said the govt is making an attempt to provide the whistle blower with counsellors and consultants that may help him arrange on how to invest the money. “What I gathered from my inquiry is that the person isn’t sufficiently stable to receive such a large sum of cash.
He is like somebody who can nearly run mental once he gets the money and can use it in an irresponsible manner, attracting not only undesirable people however even danger to himself,” Sagay told Spyreporter newsdesk.
“I assume what they needed to do for him was to provide counsellors. Not just counsellors for character and mental scenario but counsellors who would be like consultants that will help him to essentially invest the cash and set up in such a way that he doesn’t throw it away in 5 minutes.
They are trying to assist him. no one is denying him anything. they’re trying to assist him however he simply misunderstands the intention and like everybody that has been disadvantaged for a long time, he’s therefore wanting to have it but from what I will see, if they just offer him everything, it won’t last quite a month or 2 as a result of such a lot of people can begin finding ways in which to get to him and taking their parts from him.
