He stated: “The attorney general of the federation sometime in 2016 or 2015 (can’t remember the exact day) because it was not through a formal document, placed a call to me when he was outside the country and intimated me on a request he got through a source that Maina wanted to meet him.

“He wanted me to advise him whether to agree to see Maina or not in that foreign country.

“I responded to the attorney general that he should accept to see Maina but he should not see him alone”

“He should see him with a third party.”

Daura further disclosed why he had provided security protection for the fugitive ex-pensions boss.

According to Daura, Maina had sent him a letter stating that his life was in danger.

He stated: “The letter was scrutinised and fears expressed by Maina were also to a large extent established.

“Because of the right to life which is guaranteed by our constitution universally recognized, Maina’s case was directed to be looked into so as not to allow his life to be in jeopardy.”

Daura however insisted that the SSS had nothing to do with Maina’s reinstatement.
