JUST IN: Produce Fleeing Maina’s Son Or End Up In Jail – Court Orders Rep



Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered Hon. Umar Galadima, a member of the House of Representatives, to produce Faisal, the son of Abdulrasheed Maina, who is believed to have jumped bail before December 4, 2020.

Naija News reports that Justice Okon Abang on Tuesday revoked Faisal’s bail and ordered that his trial would continue in absentia pending when the security agencies would be able to arrest and produce him in court.

The trial judge also asked his surety, a member of the House of Representatives, Sani Umar Galadima, representing the Kaura-Namoda Federal Constituency of Zamfara State, to appear before the court to show cause why he should not forfeit the N60m bail bond which he signed for Faisal.

At Failsal’s money-laundering trial resumption on Tuesday, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s prosecution counsel, Mohammed Abubakar, told the court that Maina’s son and Hon. Dangaladima both failed to appear in court since June 24, 2020.

During the trial continuation on Wednesday, Justice Abang ordered Dan Galadima, who was present in court, to show cause by December 4 why he should either not forfeit the N60m he pledged while taking Faisal on bail or be sent to prison until he is able to produce the defendant.
