As controversy rages over the ownership of the N13 billion found at the Osborne Towers, Ikoyi, Lagos, a human rights group, the Centre for Human Rights and Social Justice (CHRSJ) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to open up on the ownership of the money and apartment without further delay.

The group also urged the Federal Government to stop all the propaganda surrounding the fight against corruption.

In a statement issued by its Executive Chairman, Comrade Adeniyi Alimi Sulaiman, CHRSJ disclosed that no right thinking Nigeria would believe the story of the anti-graft agency surrounding the cash found in the apartment.

Comrade Sulaiman stated that it could not have been possible for any security agency or anti-graft agency to enter a residential building without knowing the real occupant or owner of such building, stating that no whistle-blower would give information of this nature without knowing the actual occupant.

CHRSJ also asked President Buhari to originate a bill on whistle-blower policy that would be sent to the National Assembly for passage as part of effort to give legal backing to the public interested policy (Whistle-Blower), stressing that the way and manner the EFCC has been giving noise to the fight against corruption has made Nigerians to begin to doubt the seriousness of the government on the campaign.

“This is the right time for President Muhammadu Buhari to tell the whole world that he has the political will to fight corruption without fear or favour by setting up a high power independent panel of inquiry that will involve officials of United Nations to investigate and unravel the real owner of N13billion.

“The whistle-blower policy is a very good and lofty idea which should not be allowed to die prematurely and President Muhamadu Buhari should do the needful by drafting a bill on it and sending to the National Assembly for quick passage as a matter of urgency on public interest. The fight against corruption should be sustained within the ambit of the law.”
