The embattled Former Chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team, Mr. Absulrasheed Maina, has petititioned the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, over his alleged unjustly prosecution by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
In the petition dated August 31, 2020, Mr Maina through his lawyer, Mr Edwin Inegedu , prays the office of the AGF to review all files involving the prosecution to ensure, it is not malicious, and a bid to prevent accountability of the assets kept in EFCC’s Custody.
According to the petition, the PRTT was a team and Maina only a part of it, thereby being singled out for prosecution, despite money and property recovered for the benefit of the government, was a case of witch-hunting.
The petitioner therefore, urged the AGF, in the interest of justice to prevent the malicious persecution being carried out.
