Abuja (Sundiata Post) – A Federal High Court has ordered Senator Ali Ndume to be remanded at Kuje at Kuje Correctional Centre for failing to produce the former Chairman of the defunct Pension Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina.
However, Maina has repeatedly failed to appear in court for the continuation of his trial.
In a bench ruling delivered by Justice Okon Abang, the court ordered his remand pending the fulfillment of his bail bond, which is a forfeiture of N500 million to the federal government.
The court also empowered the federal government to sell Senator Ndume’s property at Asokoro in order to recover the N500 million bond.
Ndume’s lawyer, Marcel Oru, vowed to appeal the court’s ruling.
Maina’s trial-in-absentia was adjourned to November 24. (Channels TV).
