The chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu has expressed the commission’s resolve to follow the case against former Chairman of the defunct Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Mr Abdulrasheed MainaMagu to a definite end.
Speaking on Channels Television’s Programme, Sunrise Daily, Magu disclosed that the anti-graft agency has begun fresh investigations and will ensure that the case is conclusively solved.
He said, “We are determined to get to the root of this matter. That’s why we have renewed the investigation. We will retrieve all properties or whatever must have been stolen from public funds.
“This is something that we have done as far back as 2011. The matter has been in court, and Maina was also charged before the court. He was arraigned in absentia.”
“There are real grey areas that need to be tacked properly. All those loopholes and gaps, we will follow it up and make sure all the people who are involved will face the full wrath of the law.”
He also expressed his lack of knowledge on how Maina came back into the country, irrespective of been declared wanted by the EFCC.
“I really don’t know what happened. But I know that he has been properly placed on the watch list and he cannot sneak into this country without the law enforcement agencies. So something is wrong somewhere. Actually we need to look at that.”
“He has already been declared wanted by the INTERPOL and we are going to visit other countries for assistance, particularly Dubai, USA and UK.
“We are already on the manhunt, seriously.”
