An ad hoc committee of the House chaired by Aliyu Madaki (APC, Kano), is conducting the investigation.
Punch reports that the panel also invited the Minister of Interior, Lt. Gen. Abdulrahman Dambazau (retd.); the Head of Civil Service of the Federation, Winifred Oyo-Ita; the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu; and the Chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC), Prof. Bolaji Owasanoye and Maina himself.
Why this matters: The committee, acting on an October 24 resolution of the House, is investigating the circumstances surrounding the reinstatement of Maina into the federal civil service after the EFCC had declared him wanted.
“We are starting next week, possibly on Wednesday and the whole engagement will be broadcast live by the Nigerian Television Authority,” one National Assembly source said, according to Punch.
