Maina: EFCC Vows To Appeal Court Judgement

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) says it will appeal Tuesday’s judgement of a Federal High Court, sitting in Abuja, restraining the commission from declaring the Chairman of the defunct Pension Reform Task Team, Mr Abudulrasheed Maina, wanted.

The court also gave an order of perpetual injunction restraining the commission and its affiliates from further declaring Maina wanted in relation to the issue of pension scam.

EFCC acting spokesman, Mr Tony Orilade, made this known in a press statement in Abuja. Orilade said the commission will appeal the judgement.

“We further wish to state that we will not relent to do all that is required within the ambit of the law in our avowed commitment to bring every Nigerian with ill-gotten wealth to justice,” he said.
