The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has produced essential evidence through witnesses that prove beyond reasonable doubt that Maina is guilty of money laundering in the sum of 171,099.000 in a judgement being delivered by Justice Okon Abang.
The court stated that the defendant (Abdularasheed Maina), called only one witness to his defence when he had the opportunity to call as many as he could.
While delivering his judgement, The Justice found Maina Abdularasheed guilty of concealing his true identity as a signatory to accounts opened in two banks – Fidelity and UBA bank – by using the identity of his closest family members without their consent.
These accounts had cashed the sum of N300million, N500million, and N1.5billion naira.
The court held that Maina illegally took monies meant for pensioners as he could not prove where he got them from.
Justice Abang also stated that through Maina’s service as a civil servant, his salary and emoluments will not amount to the monies at his disposal.
The court also found MAbdularasheed guilty for the purchase of a property in Abuja paid in $1.4million cash, which is above the statutory threshold of N5million and without passing through a financial institution, describing it as a criminal offence.
