- The bail application of remanded Senator Ali Ndume has been set by the court in Abuja
- Ndume is in trouble for standing surety for Abdulrasheed Maina who is believed to have jumped bail
- Some northerners have condemned his arrest being that Senator Abaribe who stood surety for Nnamdi Kanu is still a free man
Senator Ali Ndume will soon know if he will be staying in prison for a long time or he will be getting his freedom soon.
This is as a result of the decision of a Federal High Court in Abuja. The court has decided to hear the bail application of the Borno south senator on Thursday, November 26.
Maina was facing charges of money laundering involving N2bn before he was granted bail.
Legit.ng had reported that to many people, Ndume, the current guest at Kuje prison, will have access to special treatment especially visit from top politicians in the country but this is not to be the case.
In fact, officials of the Kuje Correctional Centre, Abuja, stopped two senators from having access to the remanded Ndume. The two senators who visited Ndume were Ishaku Elisha Abbo and Bala Ibn Na’Allah.
Both of them were prevented from seeing Ndume who is in his current predicament after he was unable to produce the former chairman of the Presidential Pension Reform Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina, whom he stood as surety for.
In a related development, a northern group, known as Arewa Youths Association for Peace and Good Leadership wants Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe arrested for reportedly failing to produce Nnamdi Kanu whom he had stood surety for.
The president of the northern group, Ambassador Mohammed Rilwanu Katun, said justice could only be served if what was done to Senator Ndume is extended to Senator Abaribe as the two cases are similar.
He said Senator Ndume should have been given some time to produce Maina and not send him to jail.
Legit.ng had reported that following his repeated failure to appear for the continuation of his trial, the Federal High Court ordered the police to arrest Maina.
The court gave the order on Wednesday, November 18, and revoked the bail the court earlier granted him.
