A former Chairman of the defunct Pension Reformed Taskforce Team, Abdulrasheed Maina has on Thursday, collapsed in court.
Maina collapsed during the resumed hearing of his N2bn money laundering trial at the Federal High Court in Abuja.
The sitting was scheduled for the hearing of Maina’s no-case submission, following the close of the prosecution’s case with nine witnesses earlier on Wednesday.
The presiding judge, Justice Okon Abang, was listening to the defense lawyer, Anayo Adibe when Maina fell to the ground, drawing the attention of the court.
However, Prison officials rushed to attend to him.
Justice Abang said the court would rise for about five minutes.
