All of you that like to blow fake whistle, the senate has caught on to your tricks. They have now recommended a five-year jail term or a 10M Naira fine against any persons who blows unnecessary or fake whistle about stolen or hidden loot in the newly passed Whistle-Blowers Protection Bill.

Deputy Minority Whip, Abiodun Olujimi, who sponsored the bill followed a consideration and adoption of the report by the Senate Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters. According to the panel, the bill was to compliment the anti-corruption campaigns of the current administration.

The upper chamber of the national assembly has also approved that 5% of any loot recovered as a result of information from a whistle-blower be given to the informant as is currently practised by the government.

Whistle-blowers, you have been warned!!
