N2 Billion Pension Scam: Maina Goes Into Hiding
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission may soon declare the former Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reform, Abdulrasheed Maina wanted again.
Sources told our correspondent that since the news broke that Maina had been reinstated into the service and his consequent sack by President Muhammadu Buhari, the former pension boss had gone into hiding.
Maina who resumed at the Ministry of Interior as deputy director failed to show up in office on Monday as visitors waited endlessly for him to arrive.
It was gathered that Maina had scheduled a meeting with some visitors on his political ambition at his office on Monday but when the news of his sack broke, he refused to show up.
The investigation revealed that he might have gone into hiding as some officials of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission who visited the office could not see him.
It was learnt that Maina was planning to run for governorship position in his state of Borno in 2019 and had been making frantic effort to meet with power brokers in the state.
Meanwhile, a source told our correspondent that the EFCC operatives were on Maina’s trail to Kaduna and Kano.
The source also said that the EFCC has marked one of Maina’s properties located in Abuja and might seal it as the investigation continues over the alleged N2 billion pension scam.
