The Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday, ordered for Senator Ali Ndume to be remanded over his inability to produce former Chairman of the defunct Pension Reformed Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina.
Maina has jumped bail in respect of his ongoing N2bn money laundering trial.
Justice Okon Abang ordered that Ndume who stood surety for the fleeing defendant in May 2020 would only be released from prison until he either produces Maina in court.
Optionally, he can sell off the N500m worth of property located in Asokoro, Abuja, which was used as the guarantee for the bail bond, and tenders the evidence of the payment of the proceeds of the sale into the Federation Account.
The judge ordered that he be remanded in Kuje prison pending when he meets the condition for release.
