I’ve no case to reply – Maina tells courtroom

Abdulrasheed Maina, former Chairman, Pension Reform Process Workforce (PRTT), on Wednesday, instructed the Federal Excessive Courtroom, Abuja, that he had no case to reply within the allegations levied towards him by the Financial and Monetary Crimes Fee (EFCC).

Maina, who instructed Justice Okon Abang shortly after the EFCC, by way of its counsel, Farouk Abdullah, closed its case, stated he could be submitting a no-case submission.

The previous Pensions Reform boss, by way of his lawyer, Anayo Adibe, made his intention recognized shortly after he cross examined the ninth prosecution witness (PW9), Rouqquaya Ibrahim, an EFCC investigator.

Justice Abang adjourned the matter till Friday (Dec. 10) for counsel to defendant, Adobe, to deal with the courtroom orally and for the prosecution counsel, Abdullah, to answer the no-case submission.

The Information Company of Nigeria (NAN) experiences that Maina (1st defendant) was arraigned earlier than Justice Abang, on Oct. 25, 2019, by the EFCC alongside his agency, Frequent Enter Property and Funding Ltd.

Though he’s dealing with 12-counts bordering on cash laundering as much as the tune of N2 billion, he had pleaded not responsible to all the fees.
