Abdulrasheed Maina, Former chairman of the Pension Reformed Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina, on Wednesday, told Federal High Court, Abuja, that he has no case to answer on the charges brought against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
Maina told the presiding Judge, Justice Okon Abang, shortly after the EFCC, through its counsel, Farouk Abdullah, closed its case that he would soon file a no-case submission.
The former pension reform boss, through his lawyer, Anayo Adibe, disclosed his intention shortly after he cross examined the ninth prosecution witness (PW9), Rouqquaya Ibrahim, an EFCC investigator.
Abang adjourned the matter till Friday for counsel to defendant to address the court orally and for the prosecution counsel to respond to the no-case submission.
Maina was arraigned before Abang on October 25, 2019, by the EFCC alongside his firm, Common Input Property and Investment Ltd.
Although the former pension reform boss is facing 12-count charge bordering on money laundering to the tune of N2 billion, he had pleaded not guilty to all the charges.
Maina was extradited to Nigeria after his arrest in Niger Republic on Monday.
He had jumped bail, leading to the arrest of serving Senator Ali Ndume, who stood surety for him.
