THE Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, currently facing scrutiny from the Senate for allegedly spearheading the recall of wanted pension fraud suspect, Abdulrasheed Maina, yesterday, raised the alarm that masterminds of the multi-billion pension fraud and their beneficiaries were behind the ferocious media onslaught against him and his office.
Malami told Vanguard that he was convinced that the aim of the attacks was to force him to discontinue the prosecution of the high-profile looters of pension fund to the tune of N14.3 billion.
The minister, who last week appeared before the Senate Committee on Public Service and Establishment, pointed out that unknown to most Nigerians, a highly organised pension fraud syndicate exists in Nigeria and was frontally opposed to any attempt by his office to prosecute them and recover the public loot.
