The Federal Capital Territory High Court, Bwari, has granted the suit filed by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission EFCC to detain the former Chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team, Mr Abdulrasheed Maina, and his son, Faisal, in its custody pending the conclusion of ongoing investigation.
The order empowered the anti-graft agency to remand the defendants in its custody for an initial period of 14 days.
The commission however in statement noted that the order was subject to review if need be.
It could be recalled that Maina and his Son were arrested in an Abuja hotel by the Department of State Services (DSS) following a request by the Commission.
They were subsequently handed to the EFCC for further investigation and prosecution on allegations of fraud and money laundering.
