The whistle-blower’s lawyer, Mr. Yakubu Galadima, confirmed the development on Wednesday. . . He praised the government for finally honouring its agreement after eight months. He, however, said his client had not been paid in full, adding that the FG had promised to pay him the balance next year. . .
