Stella Oduah to Face Charges of Alleged N5bn Fraud in Court on July 21

Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court Abuja has fixed July 21 for the arraignment of a former Minister of Aviation, Stella Oduah.

Stella Oduah is to stand trial alongside eight others on a 25-count charge bordering on alleged conspiracy, money laundering, and maintaining anonymous bank accounts.

At the last hearing, Justice Ekwo had ordered the EFCC to arrest some persons over a threat to his life.

He said the individuals had sent text messages to his phone advising him against the trial of the defendants.

At the resumed hearing, Counsel to EFCC, Hassan Liman, told the court the progress made in the investigation.

  1. The EFCC was able to trace the identity of the person behind the threatening text messages via the telephone number.
  2. The person was identified as Okolo Obinna Johnson, a promoter of two companies.
  3. The effort to trace the person was made through the search and linked Bank Verification Number (BVN) of the alleged person via the telephone number submitted.
  4. The Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) cooperated with the EFCC in this regard.

Mister Liman further stated that despite the efforts made by the anti-graft agency and other security agencies, they were unable to physically track the person down.

However, he assured the court that the EFCC is working diligently to bring him to justice.

The judge subsequently adjourned the case to July 21 for the commencement of trial and warned that any defendant who is absent from court on that day would be committed to prison.

The 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.
