DSS Narrates How Son of Corrupt Government Official Maina, Pulled a Gun on them During His Arrest

More details have emerged in the arrest of former chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team (PRTT), Abdulrasheed Maina, by the Department of State Services (DSS). Spokesman of the agency, Peter Afunanya, who confirmed the arrest in a statement issued on Wednesday, October 2, said Maina's 20-year-old son attempted to open fire on the DSS operatives involved in the operation. The statement read:

 "The arrest which was effected at the Pennsylvania Avenue Hotel, Utako, Abuja followed a request by the EFCC to the Service to assist in the apprehension of the suspect.

 “Maina was arrested in company of his 20 year old son, Faisal Abdulrasheed Maina, who unsuccessfully tried to resist the arrest. “The lad even pulled a pistol against the security agents involved in the operation. He was, however, disarmed and arrested. He is a final year student at the Canadian University of Dubai where he is studying Telecoms Engineering. “Items recovered from the suspects include a pistol with live ammunition, a bullet proof Range Rover SUV, a BMW Saloon car, foreign currencies, a phantom 7 drone and sensitive documents. “The suspects and the recovered items will be handed over to the EFCC for further investigations and appropriate necessary actions,” it added.
