A whistle-blower, John Okupurhe, has written a letter to the President, Muhammadu Buhari , accusing the Office of the Attorney General of the Federation of refusing to pay him commission after exposing over $1bn (N420bn) hidden in Unity Bank Plc.
Okpurhe said this in a letter written by his lawyer, Aliyu Lemu, dated June 22, 2020.
The whistle-blower said the account was secretly being operated by the Nigerian Ports Authority to illegally collect revenue from vessels.
He said upon discovery, he informed the Office of the AGF of the secret account in line with the whistle-blower policy, and that an agreement was signed.
The agreement stated that Okpurhe would be entitled to a commission if the information provided turned out credible.
