Money Laundering: Court Fixes New Date For Maina’s Trial
The hearing of the bail application filed by former chairman of the defunct Pension Reform Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina, has been adjourned to February 1, 2021.
Gistlover reports that Maina had on December 24, 2020, filed a bail application predicated on grounds of deteriorating health which requires urgent medical attention.
In the motion on notice, the defendant outlined four issues for consideration by the court, one of which was him collapsing in court on December 10, 2020, due to his deteriorating health.
He also stated that he has responsible sureties who are ready to stand for him if granted bail.
Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, while adjourning the case shortly after counsel in the matter announced appearances said it is not convenient for the court to hear the bail application today.
Justice Abang, however, adjourned the case till February 1, 2021.
