“What the House of Reps committee will do is to apply to the Speaker (Mr. Aminu Tambuwal) for a bench warrant to be issued for her arrest. Once that is done and the speaker approves it, the Inspector-General of Police will be directed to arrest Stella and bring her before the committee.”
This is according to the House spokesman, Zakari Mohammed, while speaking on available options they will take should Stella Oduah fail to appear before the Aviation committee again.
She has been ordered to appear before the House Committee on Aviation which is investigating the purchase of two BMW bulletproof cars for her by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority at N255m.
Surprisingly, during the sitting by the Senate Committee on Aviation which is probing the crisis in the Aviation industry, the Managing Director of the FAAN, George Uriesi, said the Lexus Limousine cars and Toyota Prado jeeps were in the custody of a bank, but he refused to mention the name of the bank.
Uriesi, who claimed the limousines were bought for N60m each , added that he did not have details of the cost of the Prado jeeps, claiming that the bank funded the purchase.
He however confessed that it was Stella Oduah that approved the strange and controversial purchase.
An obviously enraged Chairman of the Senate Committee on Aviation, Hope Uzodinma, lambasted Uriesi for receiving approval from the minister instead of the Federal Executive Council.
Uriesi, who sweated seriously inside the air-conditioned room, was ordered by the Senate Committee chair to provide all the documents of the transactions in his next appearance.
A source told The Gossipersonline that the directors in Aviation agencies are getting tired of defending Stella.
