Femi Falana gained from loot, bought a ₦1billion house from me – Maina
Femi Falana (SAN), the infamous human rights lawyer and activist, has vehemently denied buying any house from wanted embattled former chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team (PRTT), Abdulrasheed Maina.
Falana said on Tuesday in Lagos, that there was no truth in the claims.
The Nation reports that Maina through his lawyer, Sani Katu, alleged that Falana was against Maina and calling for his arrest because he didn’t want to be exposed.
He said: “it was because the lawyer was a beneficiary of the recovered assets that he has resorted to attacking him, fearing that he would be exposed.
“During the assignment of the Maina Led Pension Reform Task Force Team, it recovered assets and funds worth N1.6trillion. Amongst the real Estates recovered from pension thieves is a Maitama mansion worth N1billion situated at No 42 Gana Street, Maitama Abuja.
“Recently, the lawyer has been vociferous in asking for Maina’s arrest and crucifixion, because he is afraid that Maina will expose him as a party to the stealing of what Maina Team recovered assets.”
Femi Falana has challenged Maina to produce the details of the house that he purportedly bought from him.
“Which house? Where is it located? Is it in Lagos or Abuja,” he asked.
“Let him give details of the house. I have never met him or had any dealings with him before.”
“He is engaging in the reckless blackmail because I criticized the careless handling of his matter by the federal government,” he maintained.
