Former Aviation Minister, Stella Oduah, along with her ex-aide, Gloria Odita, and seven others, are facing charges of conspiracy, money laundering, and maintaining anonymous bank accounts with First Bank Plc involving about N5 billion.
The arraignment is taking place before a Federal High Court in Abuja.
A 25-count charge has been read to the defendants by a court official, detailing the alleged offences. However, they have pleaded not guilty to some of the counts read so far.
The case is being closely watched, and further developments will be closely monitored as it proceeds through the legal process.
