Maina slumps in court

Abdulrasheed Maina, former chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team (PRTT), has collapsed before a federal high court in Abuja where he is being tried on charges of money laundering.

Maina slumped few minutes into the trial on Thursday while sitting beside the defendant’s dock.

The former pension chief on Wednesday told the court that he had no case to answer shortly after the EFCC, through its counsel, Farouk Abdullah, closed its case with the ninth prosecution witness.

Anayo Adibe, Maina’s new counsel, told Okon Abang, the judge, that he would file a formal application to argue his client’s no-case submission.
