Alleged N5bn Fraud: AGF Takes Over Stella Oduah’s Case

Date:

The Office of the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) has taken over a N5bn fraud case filed by the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) against a former Minister of Aviation, Stella Oduah.

Counsel for the AGF, David Kaswe, disclosed this during the court proceedings.

He stated that a letter had been sent to the EFCC requesting the case file of the defendants.

Kaswe said the commission had yet to release the case file to enable the AGF to commence the trial.

He, therefore, sought an adjournment but the trial judge, Justice Inyang Ekwo reminded the lawyer that it was the order of the court that the AGF should take over the case.

Justice Ekwo added that the office of the AGF did not need to write the EFCC as it was bound to obey the order.

Kaswe, however, said that his office took into cognisance the fact that the EFCC just had a change of leadership.

The judge, subsequently adjourned the matter till March 28, 2024.
