Ali Ndume, a senator representing Borno south district in the Senate is to be remanded in prison. This follows the order of a Federal High court in Abuja given on Monday. The senator had stood surety for the former Chairman of the defunct Pension Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina.
Ndume, a former principal officer of the Senate who ran against Ahmed Lawan for the office of Senate President, is being indicted for his failure to produce Maina.
Justice Okon Abang had to revoke the bail granted Maina because of his frequent failure to appear in court.
Maina was charged for allegedly abusing his office. He was sacked in 2003 by the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan, but the current administration made a failed attempt to bring him back to the civil service.
Ndume may be remanded in the Kuje Correctional centre.
