Whistleblower Alleges FG Over Payment Of $200m Consultancy Fee

More sordid information on the alleged sale of about 48 million barrels of stolen crude oil in China and loss of about $2.4 billion by Nigeria have emerged.

Yesterday, the House of Representatives Ad-hoc Committee investigating the unwholesome deal, said a petition before the Nigeria Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU) showed that the Federal Government paid $200 million to two companies as consultancy fee without due process.

The Mark Gbillah-led committee also claimed that the Ministry of Finance and the Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation were not cooperating with it in the course of the investigation.

Gbillah, at the resumed hearing of the committee, in Abuja yesterday, said the petition before the NFIU was written by a whistleblower.

He argued that there is no record of any agreement entered into by the government with the two firms that received the $200m consultancy fee.
