Tuesday May 16, 2017 –EFCC Wants $5.7 Million Stolen By Patience Jonathan During Husband’s Tenure Returned To Nigeria

The EFCC on Monday urged the Lagos Federal High to order the final forfeiture of $5.7 found in the bank accounts of former First Lady Patience Jonathan.

Justice Mojisola Olatoregun on April 26 made an interim order forfeiting the money to the Federal Government.

EFCC said Mrs. Jonathan allegedly paid $6,791,599.64 (about N2.1billion) into her account between February 8, 2013 and January 30, 2015.

It said the money, which she allegedly directed her aides to pay into her account while her husband was President, was suspected to have been stolen unlawfully from the FG.

The commission said Patience Jonathan had earlier spent $949, 282.98 (about N296, 141,911) from the money.

It said she also withdrew another $100,000 from the account in April, leaving a balance of $5,731,173.55.

It prayed the court to order the temporary forfeiture of the remaining sum to prevent her from further squandering it.

Justice Olatoregun directed the EFCC to publish the interim order in a newspaper to enable any interested party to appear before the court within 14 days to “show cause” as to why a final order of forfeiture should not be made in favour of the Federal Government.

Mrs. Jonathan’s lawyer Mr. Ifedayo Adedipe (SAN) yesterday urged the court not to order a final forfeiture of the money because she got it from her hard labour while she was working side by side with her husband to ensure the success of Nigeria .

    I was perturbed by her lawyer statement that Patience work hard for that money alongside with her husband to ensure the success of Nigeria. This is a moronic statement of the century! how could a Learned lawyer have made such awkward defense?.
