I Have No Case To Answer – Maina Tells Court



Maina Jailed For Eight Years For Money Laundering

The former Chairman, Pension Reform Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina, on Wednesday told the Federal High Court, Abuja, that he has no case to answer in the allegation filed against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

Maina through his counsel, Anayo Adibe, had told Justice Okon Abang, that he would be filing a no-case submission.

He was also cross examined by the ninth prosecution witness (PW9), Rouqquaya Ibrahim, an EFCC investigator.

Justice Abang on Wednesday adjourned the case until Friday (Dec. 10) for Maina’s lawyer, Adobe, to address the court orally and for the prosecution counsel, Abdullah, to respond to the no-case submission.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Maina (1st defendant) was arraigned before Justice Abang, on Oct. 25, 2019, by the EFCC alongside his firm, Common Input Property and Investment Ltd.

Maina who is facing 12-counts bordering on money laundering up to the tune of N2 billion has pleaded not guilty to all the charges.

Recall that the Federal High Court in Abuja denied Maina, a request for an adjournment to prepare for his defence on Tuesday.
