Wilson Uwujaren, EFCC spokesman, said this in a statement on Tuesday.

He said Maina will be arraigned on a 12-count charge bordering on “money laundering, operating fictitious bank accounts and fraud”.

He also said the former pension task team chairman would be taken before Okon Abang, a judge of a federal high court in Abuja.

“Also to be arraigned on the same day, in the same court on a separate but similar charge is his son, Faisal,” the EFCC spokesman said.

Maina is accused of being involved in pension fraud running into over N100 billion.

The federal civil service commission dismissed him in 2013 for “absconding from duty” but he returned to the country in 2017 and was reinstated as a director in the interior ministry.

TheNewspad reports that Justice Folashade Ogunbanjo, ordered the forfeiture of 23 properties linked to Maina.

The judge gave the order following an ex parte motion filed by the anti-graft on Friday
