Maina 'disappears again' as EFCC launch manhunt for him

Police officers attached to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Monday, stormed a mansion belonging to the wanted Abdulrasheed Maina.

Maina has been on the wanted list for about two years. He was dismissed in 2013 by the Federal Civil Service Commission following a recommendation by the Office of the Head of Service. He was accused of massive pension fraud scheme amounting to more than N100 billion.

Premium Times reports that Police officers stormed the building located at No. 10 Hamisu Musa Road, Jabi, Abuja, around 3:40 p.m. giving cover to an operative in mufti who was marking the house in red.

The building is believed to have been bought for $2 million.

Another of Maina’s houses located at No. 12, Road 11, Kado Estate is also billed for similar exercise.

Also, it was reported that the EFCC launched a manhunt for Maina’s after he was secretly recalled to the Interior Ministry.

Premium Times reports that uniformed EFCC officials were absent, although plain cloth officials may have been present.

At the interior ministry, the Director of Press, Willie Bassey said he was unaware of the presence of Maina but knew of the controversies leading up to his (Maina’s) return.

“I don’t know if anyone was made a director of the Human Resources Department (Maina’s new position). I’m not aware of any posting of such. Normally, when someone is about to be posted to the ministry, a letter is sent to us from the Permanent Secretary to notify us but we didn’t receive any letter of such,” the official said.

President Buhari had ordered the immediate sack of the wanted Maina.

The whereabouts of the embattled civil servant is yet known.
