Patience Jonathan cries out over $31.4m frozen by EFCC

– Ex-first lady, Dame Patience Jonathan is really not happy with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) 

– The former president’s wife is asking the court to declare that the monies found in the four accounts belong to her 

Nigeria’s ex-first lady, Dame Patience Jonathan has cried out over her $31.4 million being tied down by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
 
Former first lady of Nigeria, Patience Jonathan, says the money with EFCC belongs to her.
 
The Guardian reports that the account is being fingered as one of those involved in an alleged fraud case before a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos but Mrs Jonathan’s counsel, Gboyega Oduwole has filed a case before the court, informing that his client is unhappy with the EFCC over the recent move to freeze the account. 


Amajuoyi Azubike Briggs, an ex-presidential aide; Damola Bolodeoku, a former Skye Bank official; Pluto Property and Investment Company Limited and Avalon Global Property Development Company Limited had all been charged to court over their individual involvement in the fraudulent activities with companies without address. Seagate Property Development and Investment Company Limited; 

Trans Ocean Property and Investment Company Limited, Avalon Global Property Development Company Limited and Globus Integrated Services Limited were also charged with the same offence. Mrs Jonathan, is however, not taking any of those accusations and allegations as she is seeking a court order to enforce her basic human rights as it agrees with reliefs she sought, while also naming EFCC and Skye bank as defendants. 

According to the report, she wants the court to rule that the monies found with the four companies and another account in her name with a Skye Bank are all hers. Consequently, the former president’s wife demanded a court declaration that the respondents have breached her fundamental rights as a citizen of the Federal Republic by placing a ‘Freezing Order’ on the said accounts without any court order or prior notice to her. In other news, it appears that the feud between the former first lady and minister of transport, Rotimi Amaechi, is over. 

The duo were spotted on Saturday, August 20 at the funeral mass of former minister of foreign affairs, Ojo Madueke, in Abia state. Patience and Amaechi were constantly at loggerheads during the last administration as they battled for control of Rivers state where they both come from.
