Ndume hails Maina’s arrest, extradition
Former Senate leader and Chairman of its Committee on Army, Senator Ali Ndume, has commended the Police and other security agents involved in the arrest and extradition of the former chairman of the Pension Reform Task Force Team, Abdulrasheed Maina.
Ndume, in a brief statement yesterday evening in Abuja, said: “I commend the Nigeria Police Force for executing the bench warrant issued on Maina by the Federal High Court in Abuja. This has shown that the NPF is not a write-off.”
He disclosed that he would begin the process of withdrawing his suretyship for Maina, who he noted, had betrayed his trust.
“With the successful arrest, extradition and subsequent remand of Maina at the Kuje Correctional Centre, I will proceed to direct my legal team to begin the process of withdrawing my suretyship for Maina with immediate effect, because his action has shown that he is not trustworthy,” he stressed.
The Borno State senator also thanked all Nigerians, especially members of the National Assembly, the political class, family, and friends, who he said showed serious concern when the court moved against him, following the disappearance of Maina, who subsequently jumped bail.
