The senator representing Borno south, Ali Ndume, has agreed to act as a surety for the former chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team (PRTT), Abdulrasheed Maina.
Mr Maina said this to a Federal High Court in Abuja on Tuesday.
Mr Maina is accused of diverting N100 billion of pension funds and is facing trial for alleged money laundering. He is being prosecuted by the EFCC on a 12-count charge and is also accused of operating fictitious accounts and carrying out other fraudulent activities.
The former PRTT chairman, who was in hiding for almost two years, was arrested by the State Security Service last year.
The SSS handed over Mr Maina to the EFCC, which had declared him wanted for over a year.
His son, Faisal, who was arrested alongside the father in September, is accused of operating an account he used to divert various sums of money, including N58 million.
The two men were arraigned by the EFCC on October 25 on separate charges. They pleaded not guilty.
The court on November 25, 2019, admitted the former pension chairman to bail at N1 billion.
Justice Okon Abang, who gave the ruling, also ordered that Mr Maina should produce two sureties who must be serving senators.
The judge said the two lawmakers must not be standing criminal trial in any court in the country.
He also ruled that the two sureties, who must be prepared for an N500 million bond each, must always be in court with the defendant at each adjourned date.
