Operatives of Nigeria Intelligence Service and anti-graft agents, the Economic And Financial Crime Commission, EFCC, arrested Maina in Niger Republic on Monday, November 30, 2020.

Maina – who is being prosecuted on 12 counts of money laundering to the tune of N2bn by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission – was tracked down owing to the synergy between Nigeria Intelligence Team and their counterpart in Niger Republic.
