Court Sentences Abdulrasheed Maina To 8 Years In Prison For Money Laundering by HonNL: 2:59pm On Nov 08, 2021
The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, on Monday, convicted and sentenced the former Chairman of the defunct Pension Reform Task Team, PRTT, Mr Abdulrasheed Maina, to eight years in prison for money laundering.

The court, in a judgement that was delivered by Justice Okon Abang, found Maina guilty on all the 12-count charge the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, preferred against him and his company, Common Input Property and Investment Limited.

Justice Abang held that the anti-graft agency successfully established the essential ingredients of the offences contained in the charge, beyond a reasonable doubt.

He held that the sentence would run concurrently, with effect from October 25, 2019.

The court ordered Maina and his firm to restitute about N2.1billion that was traced to their bank accounts, to the Federal Government, after which it ordered that the company should be wound up.

Besides, it ordered the forfeiture of Maina’s two choice properties at Life camp and Jabi districts of Abuja, to the government, as well as the auction of a bulletproof car and a BMW 5 series car that was found on the premises of the convict.

Justice Abang stressed that though the law made provision for a maximum sentence of 14 years, he said he was moved by Maina’s plea for mercy.

This is a very lenient judgement.

With all this judgement, corruption will never end it Nigeria.

Why can't we go the China way sef?

Maina should get nothing less than a death sentence or life in prison without parole.

Maina will spend at most , 4 years. There is a possibility he will spend less than that.

The guy even fled while his court case was ongoing. That alone should carry another weighty punishment.


This country don dey tire person sef

The judgment is better than the ones we have been hearing about other corrupt government officials. Was it only 2.1billion he stole or that was the only one they could trace?
