Naija News reports that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC) received the ex-pension boss at about 5.30 pm earlier today and was being quizzed over the alleged N2billion biometrics contract.
According to EFCC top source, : “Maina, who we had earlier declared wanted, was brought to EFCC by the DSS a few hours ago.
“The security agency handed him over after the completion of its profiling on him.“You know Maina has been hiding in Dubai, UAE and some neighbouring countries and there is need to de-brief him on certain security challenges associated with him.
“For instance, intelligence report indicated that Maina was asked how he has always succeeded in sneaking in and out of the country and his connection with a safe house in Abuja.“But as soon as he was handed over to EFCC, detectives isolated issues for him on the N2billion biometrics contact. He was also asked to make statement on the funding of the defunct the Pension Reform Task Team. “He has also been asked to explain how he came about choice assets in Abuja and Kaduna.
“The investigation might also be extended to his activities as a former director in Customs, Immigration and Prisons Office (CIPPO) which he superintended with huge cash flow.”
It will be recalled that the Department of State Security (DSS) had earlier revealed how the 20-year old son, of the ex-pension boss, Faisal Abdulrasheed Maina pulled out a gun on security operatives to stop his father’s arrest.
