Operatives of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) at about 3.40 pm on Monday raided a mansion belonging to Abdurasheed Maina who President Muhammadu dismissed from the federal civil service early yesterday.
It was gathered that fully armed policemen provided cover for the EFCC operatives as they raided the home of Maina at number 10 Hamisu Musa Street, Jabi Abuja.
The wanted Maina, the former Chairman of defunct Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms was said to have paid $2 million for the mansion.
Maina was in 2005 declared wanted by the EFCC for a massive pension scheme fraud, which amounted to over N100 billion.
He evaded both Senate’s probe and court prosecution, forcing EFCC to declare him wanted.
But, under questionable circumstances, Maina found himself back to service and was posted to the Ministry of Interior.
The lid over his shady reinstatement to service was blown open by frontline online newspaper, Premium Times, which exclusively reported his new posting at the Ministry of Interior.
Following the public outcry generated by Maina’s reinstatement, President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday ordered his sack and queried the Head of Service of the Federation over his reinstatement.
