Reports reaching us say fleeing former chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team (PRTT), Abdulrasheed Maina, has been arrested.
According to our sources Maina was arrested on Monday, November 30 at night , by operatives of intelligence service in a collaboration with men of anti-corruption agency in Nigeria in a town in the Niger Republic.
Reports indicate that a top intelligence officer said the arrest was made possible by an existing mutual relationship and security agreement between the two neighbouring countries.
