A Federal High Court in Abuja has issued a bench warrant for the arrest of former Chairman of the defunct Pension Reformed Task Team (PRTT), Abdulrasheed Maina.

Justice Okon Abang, in a ruling on Wednesday, revoked the bail earlier granted Maina, who is being tried by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for alleged money laundering.

The judge ordered that Maina be arrested in any part of the country he may be found and brought to Abuja to face trial.

He also ordered that the trial be continued in the absence of the defendant.
