Ibrahim Magu, has revealed that it is not easy to arrest runaway ex-pension reform chief, Abdulrasheed Maina, because there are people protecting him from the reach of the law.
He said, “When I came in, the matter was already in court. I was so busy pursuing other issues. You need to be here with us to see the volume of work we have.
“I really don’t know what happened, but I know that he has been properly placed on the watch list and he cannot sneak into this country without the law enforcement agencies, you know, something is wrong somewhere and we need to look at that.
“I was not in the EFCC as at the time the investigation was conducted. I advise Maina to come and expose those who are involved because we will go after everybody. I am telling you, we will not spare anybody. Let him come out and expose them. If I’m involved in any way, I should also be exposed.
“He has people who are protecting him and that has made it difficult for us to get him arrested. You can imagine, he was promoted. It is really devastating, it is beyond my understanding.”
He further appealed to Nigerians to aid the agency in the manhunt for Maina and called for better cooperation in the war against corruption as it is Nigeria’s “greatest enemy”.
