A former Chairman of the defunct Pension Reform Task Team (PRTM), Abdulrasheed Maina, and his son, Faisal, are to remain in Kuje Correctional Centre, Abuja, till January 2020.

Justice Okon Abang, who gave the order, on Wednesday, adjourned hearing on the ex-pension task team chief’s bail variation application till January 13, 2020, while Faisal’s trial was adjourned till January 20, 2020.

Earlier on Wednesday, Justice Abang had said that though it would not be convenient for the court to take the trial, bail variation arguments would be taken.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)’s counsel, Mohammed Abubakar, however, said he was ready for the trial continuation and that the next witness was in court.

On his part, Abdulrasheed’s lawyer, Mohammed Monguno, reminded the court of the pending application for bail variation filed on December 6.

Abubakar, therefore, urged the court to adjourn the hearing on the bail variation application because the defence had just served on him its further affidavit the same day.
“We apply that the hearing is adjourned to enable us to react to their further affidavit,”
he said.
