Bulletproof cars: Court adjourns Oduah’s case

By 11:33 Tue, 24 Nov 2015 Comments

The Federal High Court in Lagos on Tuesday

adjourned hearing in a fundamental rights

enforcement suit filed by a former Minister of

Aviation, Senator Stella Oduah, till December 1.

The case was stalled due to the absence of her

lawyer Ajibola Oluyede, who was said to be

handling another case at the Court of Appeal.

Oduah sued the Economic and Financial Crimes

Commission (EFCC), the Independent Corrupt

Practices and other related offences Commission

(ICPC), the Attorney General of the Federation and

the Inspector-General of Police.

Justice Mohammed Yunusa had, on August 26,

restrained them from questioning or arresting the

ex-minister over the purchase of two bulletproof

vehicles until her suit is determined.

The vehicles, bought under her watch as aviation

minister, were said to have cost N255million,

sparking a national outrage.
