EFCC to Appeal Asset Nonforfeiture Ruled in Favour of ex-aviation Minister, Stella Oduah

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)  has reacted to a ruling of a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, delivered on Monday, June 8, 2020, on the vacation of an interim forfeiture order regarding some assets traced to former Aviation Minister, Senator Stella Oduah.

Justice Inyang Ekwo, in the ruling, struck out the EFCC’s counter-affidavit on the ground that it “was filed out of time without first seeking the court’s leave for an extension of time to file”.

The EFCC is dissatisfied with the ruling and will file an appeal against it accordingly.
