“We got to know about Maina on September 27, 2013 when he was going out of the country through the MMIA. He has three passports. The first one was an official one, expired not renewed. His current passport is valid till 2018. He also has a valid US passport, to expire 26 Aug, 2020.
“During our checks, we discovered that Maina has travelled many times. He was stopped because of an EFCC letter.
“In Dec 2015, we received a letter from EFCC to remove his name from stop list. But after the president’s directive, we blocked his name on the passport. So, according to our records, he hasn’t been traveling since 2013.”
