The Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Dambazau, has advised the wanted former chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina, to report to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The PUNCH reports that Dambazau’s directive to Maina was contained in an official correspondence sent to the EFCC by the Ministry of Interior.
The newspaper said it learnt that the letter was in response to another one written to the ministry asking it to make Maina available for questioning.
Sources within the EFCC were quoted as saying that the usual procedure for inviting senior government officials is to write to the head of the ministry or agency where the person works.
A source said: “The Ministry of Interior sent a letter to the EFCC on Tuesday informing the commission that it had mandated Maina to make himself available for questioning at the EFCC headquarters in Abuja.
“So far, Maina has not made himself available and we are still looking for him.”
Maina has also not reported to work since the close of work last Friday.
The EFCC insists that Maina is still wanted. The commission on Tuesday sealed six properties belonging to Maina.
