Breaking :Ex Pension Taskforce Chairman Maina Captured In Niger Republic

On the run former Pension Taskforce Chairman Abdulrasheed Maina has been captured in Niger Republic.

A top intelligence officer said that the arrest was made on an existing mutual relationship and security agreement between Nigeria and Niger Republic. 

The former Chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team (PRTT) is facing a 12-count money laundering charge filed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

According to the EFCC, Maina used his firm to launder about N2billion.

He allegedly used part of the proceeds to acquire properties in Abuja, the nation’s capital.

Maina jumped bail, a situation that prompted Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court to order the remand of his surety, Senator Ali Ndume.

The Borno South lawmaker was freed last Friday.

EFCC spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, said he was yet to be briefed on Maina’s arrest.
