*We do not have confidence in EFCC again
Legislative Watch, a non-governmental organisation, has written the Inspector General of Police, to take-over the files containing recoveries of cash and assets from EFCC being activities of the PRTT in the Police Pension Fund Office from 2011-2013.
The two-page letter signed by the organisation’s Executive Secretary, Hon. Ngozika Ihuoma dated 27th December, 2017 noted, “the series of lies documented as memo submitted to the House of Representatives Ad-Hoc Committee on the Disappearance, Reappearance and Reinstatement and Promotion of Abdulrasheed A. Maina as a Director in the Civil Service by the Acting Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, DCP Ibrahim Magu.”
He added, “We have observed that part of the lies included his statement that EFCC was not part of the Maina-led PRTT contrary to the letter from the Head of Service nominating membership of the task team. A copy of the letter was attached.
“We are worried that this denial has led to recoveries made from Police Pension Fund Operations now being subject of controversy. We are concerned that EFCC have lost the moral and institutional right to keep prosecuting the “Pension thieves” captured by the PRTT and as such cannot secure conviction in the law courts in the last five years.
Therefore, the Inspector-General of Police should take-over the files containing recoveries of cash and assets from EFCC being activities of the PRTT in Police Pension Fund Office from 2011-2013;
The organisation further asked the Inspector-General of Police to ensure that the EFCC renders account of seizures of both cash and assets handed over to them by PRTT under the Chairmanship of Abdulrasheed A. Maina;
The former House of Representatives member also asked the Inspector-General of Police to investigate the position of assets and properties forfeited by the pension thieves under the plea bargain arrangement by EFCC as we (PRTT) have lost confidence in the leadership of EFCC in this Inter-Ministerial Task Team.
