Ndume commends IGP over extradition of Maina
Senator representing Borno South and Chairman of the Senate Committee on Army, Senator Ali Ndume, has commended the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu and other security personnel that were involved in the arrest and extradition of the former chairman of the Pension Reform Task Force Team Abdulrasheed Maina.
Ndume, who stood as surety for Maina told journalists in Abuja that the breakthrough in getting Maina arrested in Niger Republic and extradited home has established the fact that the Nigeria Police Force was not a write-off.
He said: “I commend the Nigeria Police Force for executing the bench warrant issued on Maina by the Federal High Court in Abuja.
“This has shown that the NPF is not a write-off.
“They are professionals under the able leadership of the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu.
“With the successful arrest, extradition and subsequent remand of Maina at the Kuje Correctional Centre, I will proceed to direct my legal team to begin the process of withdrawing my suretiship for Maina with immediate effect because his action has shown that he is not trustworthy.”
The Senator also thanked all Nigerians especially members of the National Assembly, the political class, family and friends, who showed serious concern when the court moved against him following the disappearance of Maina, who subsequently jumped bail.
