Published

on

The Presidency has disclosed that an Abuja Magistrate’s Court and the international police, otherwise known as INTERPOL had issued fresh warrants for the arrest of the former Chairman of the rested Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Abdulrasheed Maina.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, made the disclosure on Thursday, stating that the investigation on Maina’s scandal has exceeded his reinstatement and subsequent posting.

He said the investigation would even be extended to some foreign countries.

The media aide said, “Maina’s investigation has been expanded. This is beyond reinstatement. It has gone beyond that.

“You know that the INTERPOL has just issued an international warrant on him. A Nigerian court has also issued yet another warrant of arrest.

“All those cases involving Steve Oronsaye (former Head of the Civil Service of the Federation) that are ongoing, you know Maina is also involved. Law enforcement agencies are looking at that too.

“You are also aware that the Senate is also carrying out its own investigation on the matter.

“The matter is being investigated from all fronts. The EFCC, for example, is discovering more and more properties and its officials are sealing them. They are also looking at banks and all that.

“In fact, this investigation will also touch some foreign countries.”

Shehu said the security agencies, including the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN), were making presentations to the President on the matter.
