Faisal Abdulrasheed Maina

The Federal High  Court Abuja has reversed bail to Faisal Abdulrasheed Maina, the son of former Chairman of the defunct Pension Reformed Task Team Abdulrasheed Maina. The revoke was due to his failure to appear for trial after being released on bail for N58million money laundering.

Maina’s surety Sani Umar Dangaladima, a member House of Representative Kaura-Namoda Federal Constituency Zamfara State, has been asked to be in court, to explain why he should not pay a fine of N60 million bail bond. Justice Okoh Abang revealed that Maina’s lawsuit on money laundering charge would proceed in his absentia while waiting for his arrest.

Mohammed Abubakar informed the court that the defendant and his surety had refused to appear in the court since 24th June 2020, hence the court ordered the rearrest of Faisal following EFCC’s prosecution counsel.

 On Tuesday 24th of November 2020, Faisal, his lawyer, and his surety were absent in the court, hence Abubakar requested to revoke his bail, and the same was approved by Justice Abang. The was case was adjourned till Wednesday 25th November.

The news of Faisal’s arrest came a few days after his father Abdulrasheed Maina jumped bail on his ongoing N2.1billion money laundering trial.
