Court Sends EX PRT Boss Abdulrasheed Maina To Prison..

The Federal High Court in Abuja on Friday has remanded a former Chairman of the defunct Pension Reform Taskforce Team, Abulrasheed Maina, in prison, till the end of his trial.

Naija News reports that Justice Okon Abang gave the order following an application by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) prosecution counsel, Mr. Mohammed Abubakar.

Ruling on the EFCC’s application for a remand order, Justice Abang said, “The defendant is already on bench warrant having jumped bail.

“So he shall be remanded in correctional centre pending the conclusion of the trial.”

A lawyer, Adaji Abel, who newly took over Maina’s defence on Friday after his former counsel withdrew from the case, appealed to the judge to adjourn the case to enable him to prepare adequately for the case.

The judge acceded to the request and adjourned till December 8.

Maina who is under prosecution on N2bn money laundering charges jumped bail and fled to the Republic of Niger but was extradited to Nigeria on Thursday weeks after the court revoked his bail, ordered his arrest and also noted that his trial would proceed in his absence pending when security agencies would produce him.

Maina last attended court in July and has subsequently missed up to six court sessions since September 29.

*Before he was released last time,he allegedly had about three phones in prison,they should not allow that again!!!!


  1. This is good news!
    No more preferential treatment though

  2. Mbanu, they even have tv and computers in "correctional centers." These folks can pay the entire prison official's salary for life and continue to pay their generations.
    Let's see how it goes. 😏😏😏😏😏

  3. But there are other roaming thieves in politics under disguise ..abeg fish dem out

  4. Even if they had put option of bail I doubt if anyone would stand as surety this time. Nobody wants AlakobaπŸ˜€
