N2.1bn fraud: EFCC arraigns Maina, son

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arraigned the former chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team (PRTT), Abdulrasheed Maina alongside his son, Faisal.

Maina’s son Faisal, is a final year Telecommunications Engineering student in a Dubai University.

Although the fresh charges against him and his son are yet to be read, a source within EFCC disclosed that a separate charge has been filed against Faisal Maina who allegedly shot at security operatives while trying to help his father evade arrest.

Both suspects were arrested on September 30, 2019, at an Abuja hotel by the Department of State Services (DSS) and subsequently handed over to the EFCC on October 2 for further investigation and prosecution on allegations of fraud and money laundering to the tune of N2.1 billion.

Before he was arrested by the DSS, Maina had previously evaded arrest.

Meanwhile, the Federal High Court, Abuja, had on Tuesday given an order, authorising the Federal Government to confiscate 23 properties belonging to Maina.

The anti-graft agency is arraigning him on 12-count charges, bothering on money laundering, operating fictitious bank accounts and fraud.

The Justice Ogunbanjo forfeiture pronouncement came on the heels of the exparte motion, filled by the EFCC, seeking Maina’s interim forfeiture of the properties to the Nigerian Government pending the completion of its investigations.

The affected properties are located in Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abuja; Kaduna, Sokoto, and Borno states.

The EFCC application also sought an order of the court to publish a newspaper advertisement on the properties, to enable anyone who has any reason why they should not be forfeited to federal government to indicate with proof of non-forfeiture application.
