The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Friday presented the former chairman of the defunct Pension Reform Taskforce Team Abulrasheed Maina for his trial at the Federal High Court in Abuja.
Maina who is being prosecuted by the EFCC on N2billion money laundering charges was on Thursday extradited to Nigeria from Niger Republic after he jumped bail.
The court had weeks ago ordered his arrest and trial in absentia.
EFCC operatives brought him before the court around 8.27 am on Friday ahead of the proceedings scheduled to commence by 9 am.
He sat between two EFCC operatives in the courtroom.
Maina last attended court in July and has subsequently missed up to six court sessions since September 29.
His surety Senator Ali Ndume was remanded in prison for being unable to produce him. He was later granted bail after five days by Justice Okon Abang.
