Embattled former Chairman of the Presidential Task Team on Pension Reforms, Abdulrasheed Maina, says the raid on his home by gunmen will not stop him from telling the truth about his involvement in the alleged pension scam.

Speaking against the background of a recent raid on his Kaduna home by armed men on Christmas eve, Maina said at the appropriate time, he will open up on the can of worms associated with the defunct presidential task force.

Maina, who spoke through his brother, Aliyu, said he also challenged the Economic and Financial Crimes commission (EFCC) to an open debate over the matter.

He noted that apart from the recent raid on his house, his life and those of his family members had been under constant threat ever since his return to the country.

Maina said he had since been forced to flee the country, but had maintained his innocence on the said stolen funds and even went further to asked the EFCC for an open debate for Nigerians to know what was unknown to them.

Aliyu said: “He has always maintained his innocence. I can tell you that the raid on his house can never deter him from letting Nigerians know about what he was being accused of and even beyond that.

“This raid will further strengthen his resolve to tell Nigerians the truth and nothing but the truth.”
