Senator Ali Ndume, representing Borno South at the National Assembly, will on Friday know his fate on the bail application filed on his behalf by his lawyer.

The Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday fixed Friday for his ruling.

Ndume was on Monday detained in prison over his failure to produce a former Chairman of the defunct Pension Reformed Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina, whom he stood for as a surety.

The judge remanded Ndume in prison until he produced Maina or paid the sum of N500m bail bond to the Federation Account.

Justice Okon Abang adjourned for ruling after Ndume’s lawyer, Marcel Oru, argued the bail application, which was opposed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s lawyer, Mohammed Abubakar.

Maina, a former Chairman of the defunct Pension Reformed Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina, is being prosecuted by the EFCC on charges of money laundering involving N2bn.
