Mobile police officers working together with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Monday raged one of the houses owned by an embattled government official, Abdulrasheed Maina, who was sacked as of late by President Muhammadu Buhari.
President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday requested his sack and required an examination concerning how he was reviewed into the civil service notwithstanding being on the wanted rundown of the EFCC.
Maina, who headed the dubious Presidential Pension Task Team under President Goodluck Jonathan, was announced needed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission over claimed plundering of annuity reserves running into a huge number of Naira yet he fled the nation to the United Arab Emirates since 2013 to maintain a strategic distance from capture and arraignment.
In the result of his activities, he was formally sacked from his post as an Assistant Director in the Ministry of Interior in 2013 from where he was supported to deal with the PTTPR by President Goodluck Jonathan in 2012. Maina, who hails from Borno State and is purportedly said to be a high total assets individual, is accepted to have the ears of best government authorities in Nigeria and past.
His vanishing from the nation and refusal to respect police and National Assembly’s welcome to reveal insight into the missing annuity stores, constrained the EFCC to formally announce him needed and his name sent to Interpol for ban. Be that as it may, in strange situation now causing swells and outrage in government and common society hovers in Nigeria, the Presidency mysteriously requested the restoration of Maina and the Head of Service of the Federation on October 2, 2017 did the mandate restoring the needed man to the Ministry of Interior as an Acting Director accountable for Human Resources.
The Presidency is said to have requested the restoration of Maina in spite of his status as a criminal needed by the EFCC in light of the lawful exhortation of the Federal Ministry of Justice, which contended that since the needed man had not been indicted by any known court in Nigeria, he could be come back to his post unobtrusively. The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has propelled a new manhunt for a previous leader of the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Abdulrasheed Maina.
Obviously humiliated that the criminal has been indecently been come back to his service, the Minister of Interior, Abdurahman Dambazau, yesterday washed off his hands over Maina’s restoration and guaranteed it was the workplace of the Head of Service of the Federation that dealt with the issue. The October 2 letter asserted that Mr. Maina’s case was explored and that a choice was taken that he be restored. Yet, the Spokesman for the Attorney General of the Federation, Salihu Othman, said he didn’t know about Malami’s contribution in the review adventure.
In any case, truly disillusioned by the activity of the HoS over the review adventure, the EFCC yesterday propelled a crisp offer to capture Maina and convey him to equity in spite of the disappointment of both the Interpol and the Nigerian Police Force’s inability to track him down. The EFCC is said to have sent its split agents to chase for Maina inside and outside Nigeria with a view to conveying him to equity, an activity, which is accepted to be surreptitiously proposed by some capable powers in the administration.
The commission on Sunday met a crisis technique meeting to think on the stunning and humiliating improvement and get Maina found despite the fact that the Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, was accounted for to be far from town.
“We are searching for Maina all over and we will surely get him and convey him to represent his activity,” an EFCC top source affirmed the previous evening to one of our journalists in Abuja. The EFCC’s representative, Wilson Uwujaren, affirmed that Maina remains a needed man on the commission’s rundown and that they were all the while searching for him in spite of the claim that he had been exonerated and reviewed by the HoS.
“We are on the trail of Maina, whom we proclaimed needed and the circumstance has not changed at this very moment,” Wilson said the previous evening
