Aviation Minister Stella Oduah’s Car Attacked In Abuja By Gunmen, Bullets Discovered
Scandal-ridden Nigerian aviation Minister, Stella Oduah is very happy to be alive after she escaped an attempt on her life in Abuja.
According to Abuja Police officials, the attack happened on Friday night.
Police said Stella Oduah reported the attack to them on Monday around 5:30pm.
According to Abuja Police spokesperson, Altine Daniel, the reported attack happened around 10pm on Friday.
Daniel said Stella Oduah was not in the car at the time of the attack.
In the report she filed at the police station this afternoon, some metallic objects were found in the vehicle which look like bullets.
“The objects will be subjected to ballistic test,” she said.
According to her, investigation into the incident has begun.
Also confirming the shooting, the Special Adviser to the minister, Joe Obi, said that the attack took place at the Ministers’ Hill, Maitama in Abuja.
“Fortunately, the minister was not in the car at the time the attack took place.
“An official report has been made to the police and the police are currently investigating it,” Mr. Obi said.
This attack is coming weeks after Stella Oduah’s involvement in a multi-million naira bullet proof cars scandal. The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA, bought 2 armoured BMW cars for Stella Oduah at N255 million; with many Nigerians calling for her sack and prosecution.
President Jonathan who arrived Abuja from London yesterday confirmed to reporters that he has received a report on the scandal and has appointed a 3-man committee to probe her.
Hope the BMW madam is not using this to cover up her scandal.
