The trial of former Pension Reform Task Team Chairman, Abdulrasheed Maina resumed today at the Federal High Court in Abuja before Justice Okon Abang.
The court had on December 4th ordered the remand of Maina at the Kuje Correctional Centre after his appearance there following his extradition from the Niger Republic.
Justice Abang had ruled that Maina would be attending his trial over alleged N2billion fraud from the correctional center until the conclusion of the case, having jumped the bail earlier granted to him.
Also the counsel formerly representing Maina, Francis Oronsanye on December 4th formally withdrew and the new counsel, Adaji Abel asked for a short adjournment to enable him study the facts of the case.
Justice Abang granted the application for adjournment on the ground that Maina is entitled to legal representation.
