Appeal Court Upholds Conviction Of Faisal Maina, reduces jail term by politicoNG: 12:42pm On Nov 24
The Appellate Court in Abuja has upheld the conviction of Faisal, the son of Abdulrasheed Maina, for conspiracy and money laundering.

Maina, the former chairman of the defunct Pension Reform Taskforce Team, is serving an eight-year jail term at Kuje Prison in Abuja for pension fraud to the tune of N2 billion and his son has been named an accomplice.

Meanwhile, in a judgment on Thursday, November 24, 2022, a three-member panel of the appeal court reduced the term of imprisonment from 14 years to seven years on the grounds that he (Faisal) is a first-time offender.

In the judgement by Justice Ugochukwu Anthony Ogakwu, the court held that Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court, Abuja was right to have convicted Faisal.

But as a first-time offender, the trial court ought not to have handed the convict the maximum punishment under the law,” Ogakwu added.

Father and son convicted for stealing. Where is their moral value? This country is a joke, until we change our constitution and impose death sentence upon conviction to anyone guilty of money laundry. If we are yet to do this, we are not serious as a nation.

Next year you come out and say his sentence is being reduced to 5 years or less on the ground that he is ignorant and young or some sort of legal manipulation to favour the rich while the poor faces the full sentence of The offense... Money na your mate

E don be for him. He was one of those badly raised sons of a thief who never believed that one day their monkey will go to market and never return.

This is a lesson to those currently being decieved that they can do nonsense and get away. By the time you do nonsense and gets caught, those urging you on will abandon you. Maina and his son did not spend the stolen money alone, not even his wife and mother of his son, has been mentioned but today he and his son are the ones sentenced to jail.
