This is coming after his father who jumped bail was arrested in the Republic of Niger and brought back to the court.
Faisal who is facing a three-count money laundering case at the Federal Court in Abuja had jumped bail and stopped attending trial which was continued in his absence.
Recall that Justice Okon Abang on November 24, 2020, revoked the bail granted him and ordered his arrest.
The judge also ordered Faisal’s surety, a member of the House of Representatives representing Kaura-Namoda Federal Constituency, Umar Dan-Galadima, to appear in court.
But at the resumed hearing in the case on Thursday, surety’s lawyer, Mr. M. E. Sheriff, urged the court to suspend the hearing of the forfeiture proceedings on the grounds that he got information that Faisal had been arrested.
The prosecution counsel, Mr. Faruk Abdullah, confirmed the development but said the defendant had not been handed over to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
