Justice Okon Abang, before who Maina is being tried on charges of money laundering, granted him conditional bail on November 25, 2015.

Among the bail conditions were that Maina endorses a bond of N1billion and produce two sureties, who must be serving Senators, and who must attend court at every subsequent proceeding.

Maina later returned to the court with a prayer for variation, on the grounds that the conditions were too stringent.

In a ruling on Monday, Justice Abang reduced the bail bond to N500million for Main, who he said, should now produce a single surety, who must be a serving Senator.
