Stella Oduah, a senator in Anambra State, has had her filed application, seeking to stop the Federal Government from investigating her for alleged corruption, dismissed by a Federal High Court in Abuja on Wednesday.
The presiding judge, Justice Adamu Kafarati, held that the fundamental rights enforcement suit filed by the former aviation minister was without merit and bereft of any cause of action.
The judge upheld the objection raised by the respondents, arguing that the court lacks the requisite jurisdiction to hear the case.
In the suit, Oduah urged the court to declare the alleged plot by the respondents to arrest, investigate and prosecute her in relation to her activities in office as illegal.
The respondents in the case include the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the Inspector General of Police (IGP) and the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).
