A federal high court in Abuja has fixed November 22 for the arraignment of Stella Oduah, former aviation minister, over allegations of fraud.

The case which was initially scheduled for October 19 was stalled due to the public holiday.

Oduah, now a senator representing Anambra north senatorial district, is to stand trial alongside eight others over allegations of financial fraud.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is alleging that Oduah misappropriated public funds while serving as a minister.
