The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Wednesday, said the commission will apply the arrest warrant rig out against the former Chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina.
The EFCC will be privilege to apply to the International Police Organisation for Maina’s arrest.
Maina was arraigned on the count of N2 billion fraud by the EFCC.
The Court Judge, Justice Okon Abang had annulled the bail granted to Maina.
According to the anti-corruption agency spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, on Wednesday he stated that the agency would deal with the issue appropriately.
He said, “The warrant (on Maina) is unambiguous and the commission will deal with it appropriately.”
It was learnt that two Italian officials of the pension task team were wanted for their part in the firm’s bid to defraud the Federal Government which was abortive.
The agency then requested for the extradition of alleged treasury looters and cybercrime suspects hiding in Ghana, Senegal and other countries.
The appeal was made on Tuesday by the acting Chairman of the EFCC, Mohammad Abba, when the National Central Bureau of Interpol Nigeria, led by the Head of Interpol Nigeria, Commissioner of Police Garba Umar, visited the EFCC headquarters in Abuja.
Earlier, the commission sought the assistance of the International Police Organisation on the arrest of fleeing officials of Process and Industrial Developments Nigeria Limited.
According to a statement by Uwujaren, the acting Chairman of the agency revealed that the EFCC needed the support of the Interpol in the extradition of the refugees.
The statement reads partly, “We most graciously need your intervention and assistance, so that we can get enough information that could lead to the extradition of some of the suspects. Two suspects are being investigated in regards to the P&ID case; they are Italians who are also on the run from the country.
“The information we have is that they are currently in Italy; we want the assistance of the Interpol in this regard, especially for information that could lead to their extradition.”
