The Maina saga is a saga that has refused to go away. Recently, the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, had accused the former pension boss, Abdulrashid Maina, of using his son’s account to Launder money, insisting that N1.7bllion was lodged in he son’s account.
Maina has been declared a fugitive since stories started going round that the Bornu state borne civil servant, who has been dismissed by the Goodluck Jonathan administration for corruption, and has been living at Dubai since, was secretly brought back to Nigeria and reinstated by the Buhari administration, with salary arrears paid and N22million paid to him. He was said to be warming up for Bornu governorship when the information leaked to the media.
But Maina fired back, saying that Magu lied. “I want to emphatically state my son doesn’t have any bank account with with N1.7Bn. “, he said.”I request Ibrahim Magu to show Nigerians the balance in such an account as proof and people should be allowed to go to such a bank to verify any document emanating from Magu , because he cannot be trusted. Magu thinks am like him whose brother Bashir Magu has been globe trotting buying houses for him in South Africa, Gambia and UK. Bashir Magu has been buying houses and been keeping millions of dollars for him in three secret Locations One at Magus Keffi ROAD FARM, Second one at GAMBIA. Third at a secret location in a Local Government area of Borno state.
Details would soon be unveiled. The reported petition written by EFCC staff about Magu stealling their N750m was not a lie because I also have details about it.
If Magu wants to play that game then am going to expose him and his collaborators both within the EFCC and in some high level offices in Nigeria.
Nigerians must and should know the TRUTH.
I only asked Magu to go and account for the 222 houses and cash we (PRTT) worked, unravelled and recovered and stop ranting.
If my son has that kind of money, I would have retired and not bothered ABOUT my reinstatement.”, he said
