Maina who is being tried for alleged money laundering has been declared wanted on the order of the court for jumping bail.

The lawyer told a Federal High Court in Abuja on Wednesday that he had filed a notice indicating his intention to withdraw from the case.

Adedipe said his brief has not been perfected, and also apologised for being absent from proceedings during some of the recent adjournments.

Maina was granted a bail in the sum of N500 million with a surety in the like sum who must be a serving senator.

Senator Ali Ndume, who stood for him, had reported that he could not locate Maina again.
