Maina on wheel Chair

For the embattled former Pension Reforms Chairman, Abdulrasheed Maina, things are still far from rosy as the Deputy Comptroller General (DCG), Health and Social Welfare, Nigerian Correctional Service, H.B. Kori, on Thursday, appealed to the Federal High Court, Abuja, to give him a week, to respond to the court order on the true health status of the former Pension Reform boss.

Counsel to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mohammed Abubakar, made this known to Justice Okon Abang at the continuation of trial of former chairman of the now defunct Pension Reform Task Team (PRTT).

Justice Abang, therefore, adjourned till Nov. 21 and Nov. 22 for continuation of trial.

Maina had caused a public stir when he arrived the court premises earlier in the day in a wheel chair where he is facing charges of money laundering.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) arraigned Maina and his son, Faisal Abdulrasheed Maina on 12-count charges and three-count charges respectively of money laundering and concealment of proceeds of unlawful act in October.

 Justice Okon Abang remanded Maina and his son in custody pending the hearing of their bail applications on November 6.

 Maina had earlier reported sick in court, but details of his ailment were unknown.
