Embattled former chairman of the presidential task force on pension reforms, Abdulrasheed Maina, has denied allegations that he embezzled pension fund.
Recall, Maina’s whereabouts has remained unknown since 2013 after he was implicated in a pension fraud and was declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
Maina’s fraud allegation and disappearance case surfaced again after he was announced as the new director of ministry of interior despite being a fugitive on the run.
Now, in the video, Maina alleged that there are people who wanted him dead because he has documents that can show the extent of corruption in Nigeria.
He denied stealing from pension funds, saying:
“We know where these monies are.”
Maina begged Nigeria to not believe the ‘rumour’ about him and insisted that he has never stolen from the nation’s coffers
Maina says he is in possession of documents that will expose the level of corruption in Nigeria. He called on Nigerians not to believe the rumours about him, saying that he never stole N195 billion and alleging that N300 million was being stolen every day.
It is unknown whether this video of Maina was released before his recent promotion by the Civil Service of the Federation or sometime in 2013 when he was declared wanted by the EFCC.
