THE ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL CRIMES COMMISSION (EFCC) SAYS THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS REACHED OUT TO THE NIGER REPUBLIC AND THE UNITED STATES IN SEARCH OF THE EX-CHAIRMAN OF PENSION REFORM TASK TEAM, ABDULRASHEED MAINA, WHO IS BELIEVED TO HAVE JUMPED BAIL.

THE COMMISSION ARRAIGNED MAINA ON SEVERAL COUNT CHARGES OF FRAUD AND MONEY LAUNDERING TO THE TUNE OF N2.2 BILLION.

THE EFCC STATED THIS IN A COUNTER-AFFIDAVIT AGAINST THE BAIL APPLICATION FILED BY THE CHAIRMAN OF SENATE COMMITTEE ON ARMY, ALI NDUME, WHO STOOD AS A SURETY FOR THE DEFENDANT.

THE ANTI-GRAFT AGENCY SAID THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT CONTACTED THE COUNTRIES IN ITS EFFORTS TO EXECUTE THE ARREST WARRANT ISSUED AGAINST THE EX-PENSION TASK TEAM CHIEF BY THE FEDERAL HIGH COURT, ABUJA.
