The Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered the remand of Borno South Senator, ALI NDUME, over his inability to produce former Chairman of the defunct Pension Reformed Task Team, ABDULRASHEED MAINA.
The Court ordered that NDUME be remanded in Kuje prison pending when he meets the condition for his release, after MAINA reportedly jumped bail in his ongoing 2 billion naira money laundering trial.
Presiding judge, Justice OKON ABANG ordered that the Senator sell his 500 million naira Asokoro property and tender evidence of paying the proceeds into the Federation Account, after he stood surety for the fleeing defendant in May.
NDUME had agreed in the guarantee for the bail bond that he would only be released from prison until he either produces MAINA in court or sells off the property located in Abuja.
