There was a drama at the federal high court in Abuja on Monday after the Abdulrasheed Maina, the formal chairman of the defunct Pension Reform Taskforce Team (PRTT).
The presiding judge has sentenced Maina to eight years in prison after he was found guilty of money laundering.
Following the sentencing by the judge, prison officials, who had been on hand in the courtroom and within the court premises, led Maina out.
However, confusion began when the operatives of Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) insisted that Maina must be taken from the court in their vehicle.
Maina had be arraigned on a 12-count charge bordering on money laundering to the tune of N2 billion.
