EFCC Storms Maina’s Mansion In Abuja
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Monday stormed a mansion allegedly belonging to the wanted Abdulrasheed Maina.
Maina 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 N100billion.
Maina has been on EFCC’s wanted list for about two years, prompting the anti-graft agency to declare him wanted on its website.
The EFCC operatives were said to have stormed the building located at No. 10 Hamisu Musa Road, Jabi, Abuja, around 3:40 p.m.
It was gathered that the house is believed to have been bought for $2million.
The mansion had earlier been marked by the EFCC but Maina erased the marks and carried on as if he did nothing to warrant such action by the agency.
Another of Maina’s houses located at No. 12, Road 11, Kado Estate is also billed for similar exercise.
The whereabouts of the embattled former Pension boss is not known, after President Muhammadu Buhari ordered his immediate sack from the Civil Service.
The EFCC's action came few hours after President Muhammadu Buhari ordered Maina’s sack and called for an investigation into how he was recalled into the civil service despite being on the wanted list of the EFCC.
