Abdulrasheed Maina, former Chapman, defunct Pension Reformed Task Team, told the Federal High Court, Abuja, that his leg might be amputated if not granted bail to have adequate medicare.
Through his counsel, Mr. Maina disclosed this to Justice Okon Abang at the resumed trial through his counsel, Sani Katu (SAN), on Friday.
Mr. Katu said his client was taken to the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Gwagwalada, because of his worsening health condition. The medical report was exhibited in the bail application.
The lawyer, who said Kuje Correctional Centre where Maina was kept did not have the facility to attend to his state of health, said if not granted bail, his limb might be amputated.
Mr. Maina had, on January 20, approached Mr. Abang for another bail after his arrest for jumping the first bail.
Mr. Maina, in a motion on notice dated and filed on December 24, 2020, brought by one of his lawyers, Anayo Adibe, said the application became necessary over his worsening health condition.
In the motion, the ex-pension boss told the court that he had reasonable and responsible sureties willing to act as sureties if granted bail.
