Nigerian secret police, the state security service (SSS), once made large money transfers to a bank account connected with the controversial former chairman of the presidential taskforce for retirement reform Abdulrasheed Maina
The revelation of payments, say researchers, suggests that Maina and the Security Agency had been in an unholy relationship.
This is from Premium Times, according to an earlier report, as Maina of agents of the Nigeria Police Force and the SSS, which supposedly also provided a hiding place for him, safety protection.
Maina is in pursuit of the EFCC because of alleged N2b fraud in court
Strangely, under deposits into a suspicious account 3 payments were made over a period of one year by no other than the SSS under his preferred name of the Department of State Services (DSS)
Bank documents show that the security outfit paid a total of N152 million.
The first tranche of more than 61 million euros was paid on 16 November 2011 and the last on 14 November 2012.
One of the deposits shows that he was produced on behalf of the "DSS Pension Biometrics".
It is unclear whether Cluster Logistics offered the SSS any services to justify a payment.
The discovery of the Kontodetails after a source has shocked the SSS, although the EFCC tries to downplay the matter in the spirit of the interstitial Esprit de corp
"Now that the case is re-examined, it is important that the President order forensic investigations in the SSS pension department."
Another official of the EFCC who did not want to be renamed said before the recent controversy over Maina's matter, the Commission was already preparing to accuse some of the bankers who had helped the dismissed official to wash billions.
