$15M CASH: Patience Jonathan Loses In Court

Justice Mohammed Idris of a Federal High Court Lagos today refused to restrain a fellow judge from taking steps in relation to the frozen $15.5m allegedly belonging to Patience Jonathan.

Justice Idris declined an application by counsel to the former first lady, Ifedayo Adedipe, who sought an order to restrain Justice Babs Kuewumi from taking further steps on the frozen sum.

Mr. Adedipe had urged the court to stop Justice Kuewumi from making any forfeiture orders, in respect of the said sum, which was frozen by EFCC.

He wanted the judge to wait until the determination of an interlocutory application on the subject.

Recall that Mrs. Jonathan had instituted a fundamental rights suit against EFCC, claiming the sum of $200million as damages for inconveniences suffered.
According to NAN, in her suit, she joined EFCC, Skye Bank plc, and a former aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, Warampo Dudafa, as respondents.

Mr. Dudafa was charged along four companies before Justice Kuewumi for money laundering.

Representatives of the 4 companies, which the EFCC said were used by Mr. Dudafa to launder the said money, had all pleaded guilty to the offences.

The judge adjourned the case to December 7 for hearing of the main application.

Make them leave mama peace alone. They should concentrate on proving that the money was stolen, rather that freezing it.
