EFCC wants Interpol to help arrest Maina

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has said it would apply to the International Police Organisation (Interpol) for the arrest of former Chairman of the defunct Pension Reform Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina.

Justice Okon Abang had revoked the bail granted to Maina, who is being prosecuted by the EFCC for N2 billion fraud.

Aside Maina, the commission also called for the extradition of alleged treasury looters and cybercrime suspects hibernating in Ghana, Senegal and other countries.

The acting Chairman of the EFCC, Mohammad Abba, made the appeal on Tuesday when a delegation of the National Central Bureau of Interpol Nigeria, led by the Head of Interpol Nigeria, Commissioner of Police Garba Umar, visited the EFCC headquarters in Abuja.

According to a statement from the EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, Abba disclosed that the commission needed the support of the Interpol in the extradition of fugitive looters.
