Nigerian Concord Newspaper

Controversial former chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team (PRTT) Mr. Abdulrasheed Maina, has exposed how one Bashir Magu, brother to the EFCC chairman, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, had helped him laundered several millions of dollars both in Nigeria and Gambia.

According to Maina, Bashir helped Magu to launder the foreign currencies in three secret Locations: one at Magu’s Keffi Road Farm; second one at Gambia; third at a secret location in a local government in Borno state.

Maina who made these revelations while reacting to claims by the EFCC boss that over N1.7 billion was found in his son’s account alleged that the EFCC boss has been buying up properties using a brother of his, Bashir, as a front.

In an email which was intercepted by Nigerian Concord, Maina said, “my son doesn’t have even ten million talk less of that huge amount.

His word: “Magu thinks I am like him whose brother, Bashir, has been globetrotting buying houses for him in South Africa, Gambia and UK.”

Maina also asked Magu to leave his son out of the allegations of corrupt enrichment against him (Maina) and account for all the illegal properties he has acquired while at the commission.

According to the former pension boss, rather than Magu dissipating energy on a phantom chase against his family members, he “should go and account for the 222 houses and trillions of cash and stop ranting.”

Maina boasted that “if my son has that kind of money, then I would have ashed all the widows in Nigeria such money,” and challenged Magu to “show Nigerians the balance in the account you are alleging that has that kind of money.”
