There was a commotion at the federal high court in Abuja on Monday after the sentencing of Abdulrasheed Maina, former chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team (PRTT).
After the verdict was delivered, operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) clashed with officials of the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS).
Security personnel from both organisations had an altercation while attempting to take custody of Maina.
After the sentencing, prison officials, who were already on standby in the courtroom and within the court premises, led Maina out.
However, confusion started when EFCC operatives insisted that Maina must go in their vehicle.
The EFCC had arraigned Maina on a 12-count charge of money laundering to the tune of N2 billion.
