Fraud: EFCC’s Failure To Serve Court Processes Stalls Ex-Minister, Oduah’s Trial
Stella Oduah

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

This development followed the failure of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to serve two suspects in the trial.

The federal high court fixed Monday for the arraignment of the former minister following her absence in court on February 9.

Hassan Liman, counsel to the EFCC, had told the court that the Oduah was yet to be served with the court processes.

But at the session on Monday, Liman told the court that the commission is yet to serve the fifth and sixth defendants with the court processes.

He prayed for leave of the court to serve the defendants, which are corporate bodies, at their respective addresses.

Inyang Ekwo, the judge, granted the leave sought, directing that the defendants be served within 14 days.

The arraignment has been fixed for April 19.

Oduah is facing trial over allegations of misappropriation of public funds while serving as a minister.
