Odua, who showed up in court along with her other eight co-defendants, but could not be docked following the inability of the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, to give a definite go-ahead with the arraignment.
Counsel to the Federal Government, Dr Hassan Liman, tendered a letter from the AGF’S office and demanded that the accused persons be ordered to take their plea.
He drew the attention of the court to the fact that the charge against them was filed on December 17, 2020, by the Federal Government while efforts to arraign them have been unsuccessful.
Liman’s attention was however drawn to a portion in the AGF’S letter of May 6, 2022, to the effect that his office was still looking into the issues raised by one of the defendants in the matter.
Justice Inyang Ekwo who was to give order for the plea to be taken insisted that the AGF be given time to take a definite position in order not to embark on an exercise in futility.
Other lawyers standing for the defendants agreed with the court that the AGF be given another time to complete his actions on the case file and issue the necessary directive.
Justice Ekwo subsequently fixed October 12 and 13 for the plea of the defendants to be taken and for trial.
Oduah’s planned arraignment had before now, been stalled five times due to her initial persistent absence in court.
Justice Ekwo had on July 12 threatened to issue a warrant of arrest against her should she fail to make herself available for arraignment on the then adjourned date of October 19, 2021.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, in the charges alleged that Oduah misappropriated the N7.9B public funds while serving as a minister under former President Goodluck Jonathan’s regime.
Other defendants are Gloria Odita, Nwosu Emmanuel Nnamdi, Chukwuma Irene Chinyere, Global Offshore, and Marine Limited, Tip Top Global Resources Limited, Crystal Television Limited, Sobora International Limited, and a foreign construction company.
They are charged with conspiracy and money laundering, as well as maintaining anonymous bank accounts.
