A Federal High Court in Abuja has summoned the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, and a former acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, to testify in the trial of the chairman of the defunct Pension Reform Taskforce Team, Abdualrasheed Maina.

The summon, dated March 8, 2021, and served by the presiding judge, Justice Okon Abang, was also served on three other witnesses such as The Director of Compliance of the Central Bank of Nigeria; M. Mustapha of the Zenith Bank Plc; Ibrahim Kaigama of the National Institute of Policy and Strategic Studies, Jos.

The witnesses were asked to appear to give evidence in the court on behalf of Maina on March 9, 10 and 11 from 9 am to noon and till the case is tried.

A witness, Ngozika Ihuoma had on Thursday told the court that the EFCC under Magu had mismanaged 222 assets worth N1.63trn, which he said was recovered by Maina’s task force.

The witness also averred that one of the properties in question located at No 42, Gana Street, Maitama, was illegally acquired by Femi Falana; while the property was still under litigation. The lawyer has since denied the claim.
