Buhari Swings Into Action, As Maina Who Escaped Out Of Nigeria Through Niger Republic, Faces Immediate Arrest Overseas

The Presidency, on Thursday, stated that President Muhammadu Buhari has swung into action, after the rumoured escape of the embattled former PenCom Boss, Abdulrasheed Maina, out of the shores of Nigeria.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, disclosed this in an exclusive interview with Punch’s Correspondent, which was obtained by Post-Nigeria.

He revealed that to this end, an Abuja Magistrates Court, as well as the International Police, popularly called the INTERPOL, had issued fresh warrants for the arrest of Abdulrasheed Maina.

The Presidential Spokesman said: “Maina’s investigation has been expanded by Buhari. This is beyond reinstatement. It has gone beyond that.

“You know that the INTERPOL has just issued an international warrant for him. A Nigerian court has also issued yet another warrant of arrest. All these are through the efforts of Mr. President.

“All those cases involving Steve Oronsaye (former Head of the Civil Service of the Federation), that are ongoing, you know Maina is also involved. Law enforcement agencies are looking at that too.

“You are also aware that the Senate is also carrying out its own investigation on the matter.

“The matter is being investigated from all fronts. The EFCC for example, is discovering more and more properties and its officials are sealing them. They are also looking at Banks and all that.

“In fact, this investigation will also touch some foreign countries.”

Shehu said the security agencies, including the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, were making presentations to the President on the matter.

He however, said the President had yet to say the final word on the matter, because he wanted to be fair to all the reports.
