The Federal Government has yet to send fresh request to the International Police to assist it in tracking and arresting the fleeing ex-Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Abdulrasheed Maina, PUNCH investigation has revealed.
Maina had been invited by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to explain his role in an alleged N2bn pension fraud fund. But rather than report to the EFCC to clear his name, Maina fled the country and was declared wanted by the agency, which requested the assistance of the INTERPOL to track and arrest him.
But while the search for him was still on, Maina returned to the country last month and was reinstated into the civil service with promotion, leading to a nationwide outcry.
In response, President Muhammadu Buhari ordered the termination of Maina’s appointment; while the EFCC renewed its search for the returnee ex-pension boss, who once again went into hiding.
