Agents of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and the Department of State Services have arrested the previous Chairman of the Pension Reform Task Force, Abdul-Rashid Maina.
Maina, who was entangled in a N2.1 billion pension scam, was arrested through a joint effort by the EFCC and DSS, reports suggest.
According to the reports, Maina was arrested in a hotel in Abuja as he attempted to get away by taking shots at the DSS agents dispatched to arrest him.
"He hid himself in a bulletproof car for several hours before he was forced out by the operatives. On the request of the EFCC, the DSS has been monitoring his movement for days before now," a source stated.
