The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has handed over the son of the embattled former chairman of the Pension Reforms Task Team, Faisal Maina, to the police for prosecution over an alleged illegal possession of a hand-held gun.
DAILY NIGERIAN reports that the EFCC had declared Mr Maina wanted over alleged mismanagement of over N24 billion pension funds.
Subsequently, two weeks ago, both Mr Maina and son were arrested by the State Security Services, SSS, at an undisclosed hotel in Abuja.
Mr Faisal was reported to have aimed a pistol at the SSS operatives in an attempt to resist his father’s arrest.
The SSS, in their report, listed items it arrested the father and son with to include: a pistol with live ammunition, bulletproof Range Rover Sports Utility Vehicle, foreign currencies, and seven drones.
According to a report by the Vanguard, the 20-year-old student of the American University of Dubai had been transferred to the police, leaving his embattled father alone with EFCC operatives.
The source further stated that Maina had started speaking up on how he spent the N24 billion, which the federal government handed over to him in ten commercial banks to use and pay off millions of its retirees across the world.
