The Economic And Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has denied the allegation that officials of the anti-graft body shared 222 properties which the the former Chairman of the Presidential Pension Reform Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina’s panel seized from pension fund thieves.
The chairman of the senate ad-hoc committee investigating the reinstatement of Miana, Senator Emmanuel Paulker, made the allegation during Thursday’s public hearing.
In a statement, the EFCC described the claim as disturbing, as the agency was never invited by the senate committee to explain the status of assets seized from suspected pension thieves.
“No 222 properties anywhere that were shared by anybody. The EFCC did not receive a single property from Abdulrasheed Maina.
“All the pension fraud assets that are in the recovered assets inventory of the commission were products of independent investigation by the EFCC, for which Maina and his cohorts had no clues.”
Furthermore, the agency reaffirmed that a record of all the recovered assets from both the police pension and the pension office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation remains intact.
