Why Court ordered Senator Ali Ndume to be remanded in prison without committing any crime

Borno South Senator Ali Ndume who stood as surety for fleeing former Chairman of the defunct Pension Reformed Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina has been ordered to be remanded in prison.

A Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday November 23 led by Justice Okon Abang gave the judgement while presiding over the case of Maina who jumped bail in his ongoing N2bn money laundering trial.

The judge said Ndume will only be released from prison when he either produces Maina in court or sells off the N500m worth of property located in Asokoro, Abuja which was used as guarantee for the bail bond.

He was asked to tender evidence of payment of proceeds of the sale into the Federation Account before securing his freedom adding that security operatives should remand Ndume in Kuje prison pending when he meets the condition for release.
