According to the sources, Anyim was quizzed on how the sum of N780 million released to a former Minister of Aviation, Stella Oduah, for project rehabilitation in the ministry was allegedly traced to a company in which he (ex-SGF) had an interest.

The EFCC had also arraigned the former minister for alleged money laundering to the tune of N5billion at the Federal High Court, Abuja.
