Photos: Fugitive Abdulrasheed Maina in custody after extradition from Niger Republic

The former chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team was arrested on Monday evening in Niger Republic by the operatives of Niger Republic intelligence service in collaboration with Nigeria’s anti-corruption agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

Abdulrasheed Maina who is facing a 12-count money laundering charge levelled against him and a company by the prosecuting EFCC jumped bailed and fled Nigeria before he was arrested.

His absence in court proceedings since September the 29th prompted Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court on Monday to order the arrest of Senator Ali Ndume who stood surety for Mr. Maina but the Federal High Court in Abuja on Friday granted bail to the Borno South Senator, over his suretyship.

Police say they have Abdulrasheed Maina in their custody.
