Alleged money laundering:Witness reveals how Faisal Maina withdrew N58m from UBA
An EFCC operative, Mohammed Goji, on Monday, revealed how Faisal Maina, son of Abdulrasheed Maina, former Pension Reform Task Team boss, withdrew N58 million from a United Bank for Africa (UBA) account.
Goji, who is a Principal Detective Superintendent with the anti-graft agency, is also the second prosecution witness (PW2) in the ongoing trial of Faisal.
Goji, a member of the EFCC team that investigated alleged fraud by Maina, made the revelation while giving evidence before Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court, Abuja.
He told the court that the total amount withdrawn by Faisal from the UBA account with account name: Alhaji Abdullahi Faisal Farm 2 and number: 1018636805, was N58, 101, 585.02k.
The trial judge had admitted three statements made by Mr. Faisal to the EFFC as evidence, a letter to the EFFC by the DSS on the same matter and some CAC documents for 5 companies said to be linked to Mr. Maina.
He is standing trial alongside his father who is defending charges of money laundering, operating fictitious accounts and other fraudulent activities
