The lawyer of the whistle-blower, Yakubu Galadima said the government’s intentions were suspect.
Galadima wondered why the government did not question his client’s mental capacity when he was giving the EFCC information on the money.
The lawyer said even if his client was mental, he still deserved to be given his due.
He said, “As far as I am concerned, if the money is not paid by the end of this month, I am ready to tell the whole world but if they act favourably, their image will be redeemed.
“Does Prof. Sagay have contact with my client? Doesn’t my client have relatives that can take care of him? Even a mad man is entitled to his estate so what are they talking about? That is not an excuse as far as I am concerned.”
