Police Promise To Arrest Maina Soon As They Can Find Him

Abdulrasheed-Maina1pThe police have said that they would arrest Alhaji Abdulrasheed Maina, the Chairman of the Pension Reform Task Force Team, on the Warrant of arrest issued by the Senate.

The Police Deputy Public Relations Officer, CSP Frank Mba, gave this assurance when he spoke with newsmen in Abuja on Thursday

“We are irrevocably committed to arresting Maina as soon as we lay our hands on him. We will arrest and take him before the Senate.

“He was declared wanted by the police because he went into hiding and that made it difficult for the police to execute the warrant of arrest that was legitimately issued against him,’’ he said.

On the allegation that Maina was being guarded by the police, Mba said “he has no police officer in his entourage to the best of my knowledge.

“Even in the press release that we gave, we did say that any citizen who has any information that could help us in finding and executing that order should please pass the information to the appropriate authorities.’’

“If anyone has the information on how we can get him, we will be pleased to have it,’’ he said.

According to him, the police will not allow themselves to be pulled into unnecessary controversy.

“The only thing is that the Senate has issued a warrant of arrest on Maina and that is where we come in,’’ he said.

Maina is an Assistant Director, Works in the Customs, Immigration and Prisons Pension Office (CIPPO).
