Emerging report reaching Page 36 on Tuesday evening, indicates that the former Chairman of the defunct Pensions Reform Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina, who is being prosecuted on money laundering charges, has been released from Kuje Prison.
Ademola Adedipe, a Lawyer in his Defence team, confirmed the news on Tuesday.
He said that Maina had been in detention since November 2019, following his arraignment before Justice Okon Abang, of the Federal High Court, Abuja.
His release came about a month after the Judge accepted the Borno South Senator, Ali Ndume, as a Surety for the bail earlier granted to the Defendant.
“He (Maina) was released about 6pm on Monday. We are happy that he had been released. He can now attend to his health, and have unfettered access to his Defence team, in preparation for his defence in court”, Adedipe said.
