Citadel: Jahleed's Fears Walkthrough

You can do this Assignment in two ways, depending on if you have talked to Chorban already, and accepted the Assignment Citadel: Scan the Keepers. Talking to him first, gives you more insight on what him and Jahleed were up to.

Jahleed can be found in the C-Sec offices. To reach them, you have to go from the elevator to the docking bay, head left and you'll see him in a small cove, talking to a C-Sec officer. Walk up to him to accept his Assignment. Jahleed thinks Chorban, his business partner, is trying to kill him, so he asks you to meet him in the Lower Markets.

Access the Lower Markets, either by the stairs near Conrad Verner from the Assignment Citadel: The Fan or you can access them behind the Rapid Transit Station to Chora's Den. You can find Chorban in the corner, either with two armed Salarians by his side of just by himself. If you have already agreed to scan the keepers, he explains that his intention was to threaten Jahleed to get the data from him. You have two options, tell him to stop (Paragon) or help him with the Keepers' scan task (Neither Paragon nor Renegade).

However, if you have never talked to him, or didn't agree to do any scanning for him, this scene unfolds differently and you will be attacked by him and his two Salarian bodyguards.

After you defeat them, you can tell Chorban to stop the attempt on Jahleed's life, kill him (grants you Renegade points), or agree to scan the keepers for him. 

After dealing with Chorban, the Assignment updates into Citadel: Jahleed's Secret.  When you return to the Volus, he apologizes for lying to you, and then disappears.

If you haven't accepted the Citadel: Scan the Keepers from Chorban, you have a few extra options.
If you tell Chorban you don't care about the data, you can turn him in to the C-Sec officer for stealing from his workplace. Charm or Intimidate him (Requires 7 Charm points or 6 Intimidate Points), so he turns himself in. (You get 8 Paragon points or 2 Renegade points, respectively).
You can also ask him for payment, it gives you approximately five times the amount you get for not doing it. However, you earn no morality points.
If you don't turn him in, he asks about the Keepers again, leading you back to Citadel: Scan the Keepers, if you haven't completed it yet.
