A federal High Court sitting in Abuja has issued a subpoena asking the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami, the former Acting Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mr. Ibrahim Magu, and others to testify in the ongoing case against Abdulrasheed Maina, former Chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team.

The subpoena signed on March 8, 2021, by the presiding judge, Justice Okon Abang, ordered 10 persons to come before the court on March 9,10 and 11 to testify in Maina’s defence.

The documents read: “You are commanded in the name of the President and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to attend before this court at court 6, on 9th, 10th, 11th day of March 2021 at 9 o’clock in the forenoon, and so from day to day till the above case is tied, to give evidence on behalf of the 1st defendant.”

Mr. Maina is standing trial for alleged money laundering to the tune of N2 billion.
