The Chairman of the defunct Pension Reform Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina, has collapsed in court as his trial for alleged money laundering resumed this Thursday.
The former pension boss collapsed at exactly 10:10 am when his counsel, Anayo Adibe, was making submissions before Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court, Abuja.
Before Maina slumped, his counsel was praying the court for an adjournment to enable him to get a record of the proceedings in preparation for the no-case submission he intends to file on behalf of his client.
