Former First Lady, Patience Jonathan

The Federal High Court sitting in Lagos has rejected an application on Friday by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) asking to seize the monies in 15 bank accounts linked to Patience Jonathan.

The monies, which the anti-graft agency sought to seize include a total of $8,435,788.84 and over N7.35bn.

Presiding judge, Justice Mojisola Olatoregun rejected the ex parte application filed by the EFCC for the seizure of the funds, saying the funds were already a subject of litigation before two other judges.
