Former Chairman of Pension Reform Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina, who is facing trial over his alleged complicity in a N2billion fraud, was on Thursday, brought before the Federal High Court in Abuja in a wheelchair for a continuation of his trial.

Trial Justice Okon Abang had fixed today to deliver ruling on an application the defendant filed to be released on bail pending the determination of the 12-count money laundering charge the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, preferred against him.

Maina is facing trial alongside a firm, Common Input Properties & Investment Limited, which the prosecution said was involved in the alleged fraud.

Officers of the Kuje Correctional Facility wheeled Maina into the court room at about 9:30am, armed with two first aid boxes. It will be recalled that the court had on Tuesday directed EFCC to move its counter-affidavit challenging the defendant’s bail request. Related

    Maina case is another test study for the judiciary and the world is watching.
    How come all of a sudden Maina is now on a wheel chair or has the corruption charges against him crippled him?.
    It’s one thing to be involved in a crime of this magnitude and it’s another crime trying to play games by sitting on a wheel to attracts sympathy from the same public you merciless stole from.

    • The should charge him with that wheel stir, where are we going ,doctor s should help government fight corruption to move Nigeria forwards

    Law of karma is at Maina’s door step. How can u eat peoples future and expect to live a free life? It is possible he could be knocked down with stroke overnight bcos d curse from those aged retirees is more powerful than that of atomic bomb. Federal govt should take all his belongings n share them to pensionians, they should make him pass through what those aged people are passing through when they are crying of hunger.
