BREAKING: Court revokes Maina’s bail, orders arrest

The bail of Abdulrasheed Maina, former chairman of the defunct Pension Reform Task Team (PRTT) has been revoked by a federal high court in Abuja.

The judge identified as Okon Abang at a sitting on Wednesday ordered that Maina be arrested wherever he is found.

Recall that the former pension boss who was granted bail in 2019 has not been appearing in court for trial over alleged fraud.

In a related story, WITHIN NIGERIA reported that the Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday gave Senator Ali Ndume who is representing Borno South, 21 days to produce the former Chairman of the defunct Pension Reform Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina, who has repeatedly failed to appear for continuation of his trial on money laundering charges.

The former pension boss is facing a 12-count criminal charge the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, preferred against him and a firm, Common Input Properties & Investment Limited.

Maina spent over seven months on remand at the Kuje Correctional Center before the court released on bail after Senator Ndume agreed to stand surety for him.
