The former chairman of pension reform task team Abudlrasheed Maina has appeared before the federal high court Abuja, after he had allegedly jumped bail.
Maina who is facing a 12 count charge of money laundering was last seen in court on 29th of September.
The disappearance of the defendant had weighed heavily on his surety Senator Ali Ndume who was remanded in Kuje correctional center for failure to produce the defendant but later released on grounds of good conduct and the appeal he filed at the court of Appeal challenging the remand order.
