Bulletproof car scandal: At last, EFCC quizzes Stella Oduah

Former minister of Aviation, Ms. Stella Oduah
Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Wednesday  quizzed a former Minister of Aviation, Ms. Stella Oduah, for over five hours at their  Idiagbon House headquarters   in  Abuja.

 
Investigation revealed that Oduah  arrived at Idiagbon House around  10am and left at 3.30pm after being granted a provisional bail.
An EFCC   source said   the former minister was   asked questions and thereafter asked to   make  a statement that could aid the  commission’s ongoing investigation into the purchase of two BMW bulletproof cars by the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority at a controversial sum of N255m.

The EFCC had said repeatedly that the bulletproof car scandal known as Oduahgate,  was being investigated but it  had  refused to say when the ex-minister   would be interrogated.
The purchase of the cars at a whopping N255m had sparked a nationwide controversy which culminated in the removal of Oduah  on February 12, 2014.

 
The EFCC had in November  interrogated five  top officials of the NCAA  over the  N255m car scandal.
It was learnt that they were asked to write statements on their involvement in the scandal and thereafter asked  a few questions.
A source had   said, “The commission interrogated   five top officials of the NCAA. But we  will   not stop  with the NCAA, our investigators will also interrogate some officials of FAAN.”
