Former Chairman of the Pension Reforms Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina who has been arrested is in hot soup as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has filed court papers to confiscate a number of properties traced to him.
The EFCC has filed another motion to get an extended order to detain the former deputy director with the Customs, Immigration and Prisons Pension, CIPPO, who was handed last week by the Department of State Services after being arrested in an undisclosed hotel in Abuja.
Insiders told us that; “The commission strongly believes that these properties which our operatives have traced in Nigeria and in other jurisdictions could have not have been genuinely procured by a civil servant like Maina no matter how long he would have worked in the service.”
“We have therefore filed for the temporary forfeiture of the mansions traced to him, which we strongly believe are proceeds of economic and financial crimes.”
We gathered that EFCC has traced five companies, which it claimed Maina also used to engage in money laundering and has asked him to provide details of the money in the accounts of the firms. The lists of the firms are Cluster Logistics, Drew Investment & Construction Ltd, Kongolo Dynamics Cleaning Ltd, “Dr” AbduUahi A.
