‘Nigerian Police has no clue on Maina’s whereabouts’
The Nigeria Police has no clue yet on the whereabouts of the absconded Chairman of the defunct Pension Reform Task Team PRTT, Dr Abdulrasheed Maina, Saturday Mirror has learnt. Saturday Mirror also learnt that the Force may have not contacted the Interpol as there are feelers that Mr Maina has yet to flee the country.
A security source who said his colleague was a member of the Task Team but who pleaded anonymity however said since Mr Maina was a close friend of the Police and the Department of State Service, it is difficult to believe that the police do not know his whereabouts.
The source told Saturday Mirror: “A friend of mine who is also a colleague served on that team. The last time I checked, the police was yet to contact Interpol but you can also ask them to see if things have changed in the last few days.”
Deputy Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, did not immediately respond to telephone calls or text messages sent to his mobile phone. Senate President, David Mark had weeks ago issued a warrant for Maina’s arrest but the police said it could not immediately bring Maina to book as he had fled. It could not however say where Maina fled to.
When last month the Senate drilled the Inspector- General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Abubakar, for his failure to produce Maina, the IGP reportedly promised to go after Maina with the International Police (INTERPOL), to help track him down wherever he may be hiding abroad.
