Court Revokes Maina’s Son Bail, Orders His Arrest

Maina’s son bail has been revoked by a court.

Infoexpert24 reports that a Federal High Court in Abuja has revoked the bail granted Faisal Maina, the son of ex-Chairman of the Pension Reform Tasks Team (PRTT), Abdulrasheed Maina, and issued bench warrant for his arrest.

This online news medium understands that Maina’s son is being tried by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for money laundering related offence before the court.

Justice Okon Abang, the presiding judge in a ruling on Tuesday, granted an oral application by Mohamed Abubakar, the prosecuting lawyer, for the revocation of Faisal’s bail and ordering his arrest for failing to turn up for his trial.

The prosecuting lawyer had noted that Maina’s son has failed to attend court to stand trial, as against the undertaking by his surety, Umar Sani Dan Galadima (Kaura Namoda Federal Constituency of Zamfara State) that he would always attend court.

In his ruling, the judge also granted the request by the prosecuting lawyer that the summons be issued on Sani Dan Galadima to show cause why he should not forfeit the N60million bail bond he undertook to forfeit should Faisal jumps bail.

Justice Abang ordered the lawmaker to attend court on Wednesday (November 25) to show cause, failing which an arrest order shall be made against him.
