The former Chairman of the defunct Pension Reform Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina, has just slumped before trial Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.
According to news report, Maina slumped at exactly 10:05 am when his counsel, Anayo Adibe was making submissions before Justice Okon Abang handling his trial.
The court on Thursday resumed proceedings in the 12-count charge preferred against him and his firm, Common Input Property and Investment Limited by Nigeria’s anti-graft agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Maina, who had earlier jumped bail, was recently extradited from Niger Republic where he had ostensibly gone into hiding.
