Stella Oduah: Arraignment of ex-Aviation Minister stalled



The arraignment of a former Minister of Aviation, Sen. Stella Oduah, at the Federal High Court, Abuja, on Monday, has stalled once again.

The arraignment of Stella Oduah could not commence over the inability of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to serve two suspects in the trial

Counsel to the EFCC, Dr. Hassan Liman, SAN, at the mention of the case before Justice Inyang Ekwo; told the court that the fifth and sixth suspect in the matter were yet to be served with the court processes.

Consequently, Justice Ekwo adjourned the matter until April 19 for the suspects to take their plea.

Equally important, the court had earlier fixed Tuesday February 9 for the arraignment of Stella Oduah. Oduah currently represents Anambra North Senatorial District at the National Assembly. Due to the fact that she was yet to be served with the court processes, the arraignment could not go on.

The lawmaker is facing the fraud charge alongside eight others in a suit with number: FHC/ABJ/CR/316/20. The anti-corruption agency alleges that Oduah misappropriated public funds to the tune of N5 billion while serving as Minister of Aviation.

Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the founder and Chairman, Zinox Technologies, Leonard Stanley Ekeh, on his birthday.

Ekeh turns 65 today, February 22, 2021.

In a congratulatory message by the Special Adviser, Media and Publicity to Buhari, Mr Femi Adesina, in Abuja on Sunday; the President joined family, friends and business associates to celebrate with the renowned investor.

Buhari stated that Ekeh’s interest in technology has brought great pride to the country.
