September 16, 2016 – EFCC Sues Patience Jonathan Over $15Million Loot, Says Ex-First Lady Must Surrender The Stolen Money

EFCC Sues Mama Peace, Says Patience Jonathan $15Million Loot Must Be Returned Into Nigeria’s Treasury

The EFCC says it is heading to court to file an application seeking the total forfeiture of $15,591,700, belonging to former First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan.

The money is currently lodged in the Skye Bank account of four companies: Pluto Property and Investment Company Limited; Seagate Property Development & Investment Company Limited; Trans Ocean Property and Investment Company Limited and Avalon Global Property Development Company Limited.

The EFCC had frozen the four accounts, which were linked to a former Special Adviser to the President on Domestic Affairs, Waripamowei Dudafa.

However, Jonathan’s wife had claimed in a sworn affidavit that the money in the four accounts belonged to her even though there is no paper evidence to establish a link between her and the companies.

She also urged the court to compel the EFCC to lift the restriction on the accounts.

The EFCC had arraigned the four companies on Thursday and the companies pleaded guilty to money laundering charges.

Punch quoted a senior EFCC official as saying that the commission would subsequently apply for the total forfeiture of the funds.

“The four companies, in whose accounts the monies were lodged, have pleaded guilty to money laundering. We are therefore filing an application, seeking the complete and total forfeiture of the money to the Federal Government.

“The $15,591,700 should go (be deposited in) into the Treasury Single Account of the Federal Government of Nigeria,” Punch quoted the EFCC source as saying.

  1. She will never hand any money in.. this issue is a open and close case just the rest of them. eg Dansukigate. No prosecution no nothing.’

  2. Chai! Darris God wooo…. I don’t known why this people loot, and never agree that they loot. Nigerians are wise-enough more than your expaections, you claimed that you owned dis huge amount of money, and we (Nigerians) knew, you never held any office and you’re not a bussiness-woman. Mrs ex-president, can you tell us how and when you come about dis huge amount of money. I guess no! So better prepare for jail for your remaining years.

  3. After the money is return to Nigerian national treasure, the EFCC should prosecute this illerate and wicked woman for money laundering, embezzlement, and corruption that destroyed Nigerian economy within six years of her zoologist husband in office. If this woman has $15 millions stocked up in a secret account in an amarture bank like Sky bank,only God knows how much billions of the people’s money looted from the national treasure that are stock in other Nigerian bank accounts and in many foreign accounts. PMB admistration will lose its credibility and respect if EFCC refuses to prosecute and charge Mama Thief to court and eventually send her to jail. Why punishing innocent people who she and her husband used to carry out the money laundering operations while the Ogas at the top are enjoying themselves in their various mansions? There is God ooo!

  4. Watching the whole drama with interest.
    Lemme me see how this works out.
    If the companies pleaded guilty to money laundering, and the money belong to her, then what the heck are they still waiting for ?
    Do the necessary thing that should be done than waiting and asking
    NONSENSE.
    What a shame, A MOTHER STEALING THE FOOD MEANT HER KIDS FOR HER OWN SELFISH GAIN.MAMA PEACE INDEED.
