The trial of former Minister of aviation, Stella Oduah has stalled once again as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC was yet to serve the fifth and sixth defendants with the court processes.
The Federal High Court had fixed Monday for the arraignment of the former minister following her absence in court on February 9.
The EFCC counsel, Hassan Liman told the court that the commission was then yet to serve her with the court processes.
But at the session on Monday, Liman told the court that the commission is yet to serve the fifth and sixth defendants with the court processes.
He prayed for leave of the court to serve the defendants, which are corporate bodies, at their respective addresses.
Inyang Ekwo, the judge, granted the leave sought directing that the defendants be served within 14 days, thereby adjourning the trial to April 19.
Oduah alongside eight others are facing trials for allegedly misappropriating public funds while she served as a minister during the Goodluck Jonathan administration.
