Stella Oduah Appears In Court Over Alleged Financial Misappropriation

Former Minister of Aviation, Senator Stella Oduah has appeared at the Federal High Court, Abuja, on Monday, over alleged financial impropriety.

Stella Oduah and eight others in a 25-count are accused of fraud and diversion of funds through the operation of anonymous bank accounts.

At the resumed sitting, the prosecutor, Hassan Liman told the court that the EFCC has been unable to serve the charges on the fifth and sixth defendants who are corporate bodies.

The prosecutor, therefore, requested for an adjournment.

The presiding judge, Justice Inyang Ekwo then fixed April 19, 2021, for the arraignment.

Justice Inyang Ekwo had earlier fixed February 22 for the arraignment because the Former Minister was yet to be served with the court processes when the case was first mentioned on February 9, 2021.

Senator Oduah currently represents Anambra North Senatorial District at the National Assembly.
