Moses Ofodeme 

The Federal High Court, Abuja, on Monday, November 23, ordered the Chairman of the Senate Committee on the Army, Ali Ndume, to be remanded in Kuje Prison.

This is for failing to produce the former Chairman of the defunct Pension Reformed Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina, in court.

Justice Okon Abang ordered that Ndume who stood surety for the defendant in May 2020 would only be released from prison until he either produces Maina in court or sells off the N500 million worth of property located in Asokoro, Abuja.

The property 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.
