Maina is currently facing charges of money laundering by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) the tune of N2 billion.
However, the former secretary general of the federation jumped bail. This prompted Okon Abang, a judge of the federal high court in Abuja, to order the arrest of Ali Ndume, senator representing Borno south, who stood as guarantor for Maina.
After about four days in custody, the court granted the legislator bail on Friday.

Abang had said although other grounds of Ndume’s bail application failed, the senator has a record of “good behaviour”.
The judge asked the Borno lawmaker to produce a surety who must be a resident of the federal capital territory (FCT) and has property in the territory.
Abang said the surety must also depose an affidavit of their readiness to face the consequences if the senator absconds.
