Maina’s lawyer, Adeola Adedipe, told NAN that “this is good for us because we will now have time to prepare for his defence; we will now have good conferencing on the matter.”
Maina, through his lawyer, Joe Gadzama, had, on June 23, informed the court that Sen. Ali Ndume, representing Borno South, had decided to stand as surety for him.
Maina, charged with 12-counts bordering on money laundering, had pleaded not guilty to all the charges. (NAN)
