He was received by operatives of the Nigeria Police Force upon return to the country.

Recall that Maina who is standing trial in a N2bn money laundering case brought against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), initially jumped bail.

His jumping bail led the court to remand his surety, Senator Ali Ndume at the Kuje Prison until he was able to perfect his personal bail conditions.

Maina was eventually arrested on Monday evening by operatives of the Intelligence Service and anti-corruption agents in collaboration with counterparts from the Niger Republic.
