Bulletproof Cars: Oduah’s Fundamental Rights Suit For Hearing Nov. 16

Justice Mohammed Yunusa of a Federal High Court sitting in Ikoyi, Lagos has set aside November 16, 2015 as the day to entertain a fundamental rights enforcement initiated by former Minister of Aviation, Princess Stella Oduah.

The former minister wants the court to protect her from probe over the purchase of two armoured BMW cars at a cost of N160m in 2013 by the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority under her watch.

The judge had on August 26, 2015 obtained an interim injunction stopping the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) from taking any action against her pending the determination of the suit.

It is recalled that after granting the interim injunction on August 26, Justice Yunusa adjourned hearing of the main case till October 2, 2015, the matter was however listed for hearing on Wednesday (yesterday).

However when the matter was called, Oduah, EFCC and the Inspector General of Police were not represented in court.

Only the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission was represented by its counsel, Funmilola Oluborode.
