Court Reserves Ruling on Variation of Maina's Bail Conditions


   The trial of Abdulrasheed Maina, former Chairman, Pension Reform Task Team, continued on Tuesday, January 14, 2020 with Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court Abuja, deferring ruling on the application for the variation of his bail conditions to January 23.

    Maina is being prosecuted by the EFCC on a 12-count charge, bordering on operating fictitious bank accounts, fraud and money laundering to the tune of over N2billion, alongside his son, Faisal, who is facing a three-count charge of money laundering, corruption and lack of full disclosure of assets.

  Though he was granted bail on November 25, 2019, Maina has remained in Kuje Correctional Centre, Abuja due to his failure to meet up with his bail conditions.
