UPDATE |EFCC Trace N2.5 billion To Stella Oduah (Former Minister) House Girl’s Bank Account

If this story is confirmed and Stella Oduah is arrested by the EFCC, then you will hear some people come out and say EFCC is going after her because she was following Bukola Saraki to court. Lol!


According to SR, agents of the EFCC have discovered the sum of N2.5 billion in a bank account opened in the name of a housemaid to former Minister of Aviation, Stella Oduah, who is now a senator representing Anambra State in the upper chamber.

Two senior EFCC sources revealed that the bank account and its huge deposits had been opened and operated without the knowledge of the innocent housegirl.

“Senator Oduah apparently opened the account with her housemaid’s name, image, and others details (but fake signature) without the housemaid knowing about it,” said an EFCC agent familiar with the case.

Another EFCC source said Ms. Oduah had been going around to some top officials of the Muhammadu Buhari administration seeking their help to scuttle her impending arrest and trial. Last week, she asked for a meeting with EFCC chairman Ibrahim Magu, claiming it was for official purpose.

The two EFCC sources who briefed SR on the “housemaid” account disclosed that Ms. Oduah was the sole signatory to the account, adding that they were still connecting the dots to uncover how the ex-Aviation Minister managed to pull off such a money laundering operation.

“As of last week, the account was still active and contained over N2.5 billion,” said one EFCC source. He added that he could not ascertain whether the EFCC chairman, who is currently traveling in Saudi Arabia for lesser hajj, had ordered the freezing of the account.

An insider revealed that the discovery of the “maid” account meant that the former minister must have stolen as much as N5.6 billion so far from the Aviation Ministry’s funds during her ministerial term under the watch of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.

And this woman was even compensated with a Senatorial seat. Just imagine our country – Nigeria!
