The former Chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team, AbdulRasheed Maina, has been arrested by operatives of the Department of State Services.

Maina had been on the run in the last four years.

He was, however, arrested by operatives of the DSS at a hotel in Abuja after he sneaked into the country from Dubai, United Arab Emirates, where he fled to and subsequently declared wanted.

Maina was accused of fraudulent deals as chairman of the PRTT.

He was accused of complicity in a questionable N2 billion biometrics contract.

He was on July 21, 2015 charged alongside a former Head of the Civil Service of the Federation Steven Oronsaye, Osarenkhoe Afe and Fredrick Hamilton Global Services Limited before a Federal High Court on a 24-count charge bordering on procurement fraud and obtaining by false pretence.

The Economic and and Financial Crimes Commission had in 2017 declared Maina wanted following his refusal to honour its invitation.
