An Abuja Federal High Court presided by Justice Okon Abang, has ordered Senator Ali Ndume (Borno South), to be remanded in Kuje correctional centre, over failure to produce Abdulrasheed Maina, who is standing trial over money laundering.
Justice Abang gave the order on Monday.
Recall that Senator Ndume had stood surety to Maina, before he was granted bail.
The Justice held that having failed to produce Maina, who is believed to have jumped bail and having failed to show cause why he should not forfeit his bail bond, ordered that Ndume should only be released if he meets either of three conditions.
The conditions are that, if Ndume pays N500m bail bond into the Federation Account of the Federal Government and present evident of such payment in court or the FG sells the property situated in Asokoro, Abuja which Ndume pledge as security for the bond and present evidence of sale and payment of the N500m realised into the Federation Account or he (Ndume) produces Maina, who is believed to have now jumped bail, in court.
Ndume was immediately led away from the courtroom shortly after the judge’s pronouncement.
