Former Chairman of the defunct Pension Reform Task Team (PRTT), Abdulrasheed Maina begs for bail from a Federal High Court in Abuja.
Maina Begs For Bail, says his leg may be amputated
On Friday, the former pension boss spoke through his counsel, Sani Katu, at the resumed trial.
Maina said he risks amputation of his leg if not granted bail to have adequate medical care.
Katu said his client was taken to the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Gwagwalada, because of his worsening health condition, and the medical report was attached to the bail application.
The lawyer, who said that Kuje Correctional Centre where Maina had been kept does not have the facility to attend to his state of health, said if not granted bail, his knee might be amputated.
