Court fixes July 21 for Stella Oduah’s arraignment over alleged N5b fraud

THE Federal High Court in Abuja’s Justice Inyang Ekwo has set July 21 for Stella Oduah, a former minister of aviation, to be charged.

Stella Oduah will go on trial with eight other defendants on 25 counts that include allegations of conspiracy, money laundering, and keeping secret bank accounts.

Justice Ekwo had instructed the EFCC to make some arrests during the previous hearing over threat to life.

He stated that the individual had texted him warning him not to hold the defendants’ trial.

At the resumed hearing, Hassan Liman, the EFCC’s lawyer, informed the court that the agency had conducted an investigation and was able to identify the person by phone number.

Other defendants in the case are Gloria Odita, Nwosu Emmanuel Nnamdi, Chukwuma Irene Chinyere, Global Offshore and Marine Ltd, Tip Top Global Resources Ltd, Crystal Television Ltd, Sobora International Ltd, and China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC) Nigeria Ltd.
