Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on Monday laid siege to a mansion belonging to Abdulrasheed Maina, who has been on the wanted list for about two years, for pension fraud amounting to N2bn.
The building at No. 10 Hamisu Musa Road, Jabi, Abuja, was surrounded by stern looking police officers giving cover to an operative in mufti who was marking the house in red.
The building is believed to have been bought by Maina for $2m.
It was not immediately known if he was in the building or has been arrested by the EFCC
Another of Maina’s houses located at No. 12, Road 11, Kado Estate is also billed for similar exercise.
President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday ordered his sack and called for an investigation into how he was recalled into the civil service despite being on the wanted list of the EFCC.
Meanwhile, Maina was said to have been absent from his desk on Monday morning in the Ministry of Interior.
Criticisms have trailed his recall. President Muhammadu Buhari in a swift move after the news of his reinstament broke, directed his immediate dismissal.
The Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Dambazau, on Sunday confirmed Maina’s reinstatement but said his Ministry acted on a directive by the Head of Service.
