The trial of the former chairman of the pension reform task team, Abdulrasheed Maina, has been adjourned until the twenty first and twenty second of November.
Maina was brought into the federal high court in Abuja in a wheelchair by officers of the Kuje Correctional Facility, armed with two first aid boxes.
Mr Maina sought bail after being accused by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission of an alleged two billion naira fraud.
But now the case has been adjourned to enable the Nigerian Correctional Service to carry out medical tests on him, to ascertain his health status.
He is facing trial alongside a firm, Common Input Properties and Investment Limited, which the prosecution says was involved in the fraud.
