- Abdulrasheed Maina is fit the stand trial, the court has been told
- This was contained in a report submitted to the court
- According to the report, Maina only has slight malaria and high blood pressure
Despite his the fact that he is always seen on wheelchair or walking stick whenever he appeared in court, the purported illness of Abdulrasheed Maina, former chairman of the Pension Reforms Task Force (PRTF) has been debunked.
According to a medical report from the National Correctional Service (NCS) presented to a federal high court in Abuja on Monday, November 25, showed that Abdulrasheed Maina, former chairman of the Pension Reforms Task Force (PRTF), Maina only has slight malaria and high blood pressure.
As a result of this, he is believed to fit to stand trial.
The report signed by Remi Ojo, an assistant comptroller general (medical) of the service, The Cable reports.
The report said Maina was suffering from high blood pressure but it has been brought under control.
“Maina vital organs are working normal. He is fit to stand trial.”
Consequently, Okon Abang, the judge, ordered the prosecution to serve the defence team with the report.
Meanwhile, recall that Legit.ng reported that a court on Monday, November 25, granted bail to Maina, in the sum of one billion naira with two sureties in like sum.
