Maina: Court Orders Senator Ndume’s Remand In Prison

Senator Ali Ndume

The Federal High Court Abuja has remanded Senator Ali Ndume in prison custody over his inability to produce fugitive former Chairman of the defunct Pension Reformed Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina, who jumped bail in respect of his N2bn money laundering trial.

Justice Okon Abang gave the order on Monday, saying the Borno South Senator, who stood surety for the fleeing defendant in May 2020, would only be released from prison when he either produces Maina in court or sells off the N500m worth of property located in Asokoro, Abuja, which he used as the guarantee for the bail bond and tenders the evidence of the payment of the proceeds of the sale into the Federation Account.

Justice Aband ordered that Ndume be remanded in Kuje prison until he meets the condition for release.
