Maina pleads innocence, remanded  


Abdulrasheed Maina, former chairman of Pension Reform Task Team, has been remanded in Abuja Correctional Centre (prison) on the orders of a Federal High Court in the FCT.


Justice Okon Abang gave the ruling on Friday following an application by the prosecution — — the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).


Maina’s son, Faisal, is also arraigned on a similar charge.


The case was adjourned  untill October 30 for commencement of trial.


Maina was arraigned on a 12-count charge bordering on money laundering, operating fictitious bank accounts and fraud.


On Oct. 22, Justice Folasade Giwa-Ogunbanjo had ordered the temporary forfeiture of 23 property linked to Maina.


The  order followed an ex-parte motion filed by the EFCC.
