AbdulRashid Maina, Extradited from Niger


It was indeed a shame as the former Chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team (PRTT), AbdulRashi Maina, has been bundled back to Nigeria from the Niger Republic.

Maina is facing a 12-count money laundering charge brought against him and a firm by EFCC, amounting to a tune of about N2billion.

He, however, jumped bail forcing the trial judge, Justice Abang Okon to issue an arrest warrant against him.

Maina, who fled from the country to seek refuge in the Niger Republic has, therefore, been arrested on Monday by the Nigerian authority and also extradited back to face his court cases.
