Former chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team (PRTT), Abdulrasheed Maina arrived at the federal high court in Abuja for his trial in a wheelchair.
The former PRTT boss was wheeled into the courtroom by two prison wardens.
A ruling on his application for bail is expected to hold today, Thursday.
Mr Maina was arraigned on October 25 and pleaded not guilty to the 12-count charge of N100 billion pension fraud brought against him.
He is being prosecuted by the EFCC on a 12-count charge bordering on money laundering, operating fictitious accounts and other fraudulent activities.
