Inside Details: What Magu told Reps about Maina

The acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, told a House of Reps panel on Thursday that Abdulrasheed Maina never handed over any property seized from alleged pension thieves to the commission.

Magu told the panel, which is investigating Maina’s reinstatement into the civil service and subsequent promotion, that rather, EFCC on its independent investigation seized some property from alleged pension fraudsters.

“The EFCC has no any record of any collaboration between it and the pension task team led by Maina.

“The only relationship between us was the verification of the task team personnel. It wasn’t a criminal investigation. Maina did not hand over a single asset recovered to the commission.

“If he claims contrary, he should come out with evidence for that: the date, time and venue, name the officials that collected, the type of assets.

“It follows that if he never submitted any assets to EFCC there wasn’t any asset to share. As far as the commission is concerned, all the assets recovered from pension fraud were a result of independent investigation.”
