Embattled former chairman of the defunct Pension Reformed Task Team (PRTT), has appealed to Justice Okong Abang of the Federal High Court, Abuja, to grant him bail as he stands the risk of getting his leg amputated due to his failing health condition.
Maina through his lawyer, Sani Katu SAN, made the appeal at the resumed hearing of his trial today February 19
Katu told the court that his client was taken to the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Gwagwalada, because of his worsening health condition and the medical report was exhibited in the bail application.
The lawyer said Maina’s leg might be amputated as the Kuje Correctional Centre where he is being held does not have the facility to attend to his state of health.
Maina who is standing trial for an alleged N2 billion fraud, had on January 20, approached Justice Abang for another bail after his arrest for jumping the first bail.
