Underfire ex chairman of the defunct Pension Reformed Task Team (PRTT), has begged 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 degrading health condition.
Abdulrasheed Maina through his legal counsel, Sani Katu SAN, made the appeal at the resumed hearing of his trial today February 19.
Katu prayed the court that his client was taken to the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Gwagwalada, as a result of his worsening health condition and the medical report was exhibited in the bail application.
The lawyer added that Maina’s leg might be amputated as the Kuje Correctional Centre where he is being held does not have the facility to address his state of health.
Maina is standing trial for an alleged N2 billion fraud. He had on January 20, approached Justice Abang for another bail after his arrest for jumping the first bail.
