Maina is being prosecuted on 12 counts of money laundering to the tune of N2bn by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
He jumped bail leading to the sentencing of the lawmaker who stood as surety, Senator Ali Ndume to prison and forcing the trial judge, Justice Abang Okon, to issue a warrant for his arrest.
The Senator was however also released on bail last week Friday after meeting conditions set by the court.
