EFCC freezes Patience Jonathan’s personal account with $5m

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has frozen Patience Jonathan’s personal account, titled ‘Patience Ibifaka Jonathan’, which is domiciled in Skye Bank Plc.

Credible sources within the agency disclosed that the move had become necessary due to the prima facie case established against former President Goodluck Jonathan’s wife.

As part of investigations into diversion against a former Special Adviser to ex-President Jonathan on Domestic Affairs, Waripamowei Dudafa, the anti-graft agency had frozen four companies’ accounts in Skye Bank with a balance of $15,591,700.

However, before the EFCC could arraign the four companies in court, Jonathan’s wife deposed to an affidavit, claiming that the money belonged to her.

The EFCC said it is good that Patience Jonathan took them to court by herself, so they will do their job as is expected by the law.
