BREAKING: EFCC declares Maina wanted

Global day of prayer with Rev Chris Oyakhilome

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has declared Abdulrasheed Maina, former chairman of Pension Reform Task Team (PRTT), wanted for alleged fraud.

The spokesperson of the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, who confirmed the move to news360 info, also said the anti-graft agency had have already secured an arrest warrant against the former pension boss.

He said the warrant will enable the commission to arrest Mr. Maina “wherever he is in the world”.

EFCC has declared Abdulrasheed Maina, former chairman of Pension Reform Task Team, wanted,” he said tersely. ‎

In 2013, the former PRTT boss, who is alleged to have stolen billions of pension funds, was reported to have fled the country after a bench warrant was issued for his arrest. ‎

Maina was also implicated in the case of stealing brought against Steve Oronsaye, former head of service, by the EFCC.

“It is in relation to the charge against Oronsaye that we have declared him wanted,” Uwujaren said.

“He has failed to appear in court, and we do not know where he is.” Oronsaye, who was charged alongside Maina, is accused of using front companies to steal billions from the federal government.

He is currently on trial but was granted bail by Gabriel Kolawole, justice of the federal high court, Abuja, in August.
