Jonathan /EFCC: Patience Jonathan Files Case Against EFCC

A large number of supporters of former first lady, Patience Jonathan have took over the federal high court premises in Lagos protesting corruption allegation against her.

Jonathan is seeking for the enforcement of her fundamental human rights over her frozen accounts by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission.

Former First Lady, Patience Jonathan had filed a 200 million Naira fundamental rights enforcement suit against Skye Bank Plc, following the freezing of four bank accounts, which she claims the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had used to inconvenience and embarrass her.

The four accounts, lodged with Skye Bank Plc, are in the name of four companies which is said to have a balance of $31.4m

The four companies are Pluto Property and Investment Company Limited; Seagate Property Development & Investment Co. Limited; Trans Ocean Property and Investment Company Limited and Development Company Limited and Globus Integrated Service Limited.

In an affidavit filed before the court by one Sammie Somiari, a legal practitioner on behalf of Patience Jonathan, claims that the EFCC placed a No Debit Order on the four accounts in July in the course of probing one Waripamo Dudafa, a former Special Adviser on Domestic Affairs to former President Goodluck Jonathan.

After its investigations, the EFCC went ahead to file an amended 17-count against Dudafa and seven others, including the four companies, with the defendants being accused of conspiring to conceal the monies which the EFCC claimed they ought to have known formed parts of the proceeds of an unlawful act.
