Justice Okon Abang of the federal high court in Abuja has found former Chairman of the defunct Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Abdulrasheed Maina guilty of inducing staff of Fidelity Bank to open bank accounts for him without conducting the requisite due diligence.

The court also found Maina guilty of concealing his true identity as a signatory to accounts opened in UBA and Fidelity bank by using the identity of his family members without their knowledge.

These accounts had cash deposits of N300 million, N500 million and 1.5 billion respectively.

The court held that Maina stole monies meant for pensioners as he could not prove where he got the same from

Justice Abang also held that through Maina’s service as a civil servant his salary and emoluments will not amount to the monies in these accounts.
