EFCC tells court to cease Patience Jonathan’s $8.4m, N9.2bn

EFCC tells court to cease Patience Jonathan’s $8.4m, N9.2bn

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), is seeking the final forfeiture of the sums of 8.4 million dollars and 9.2 billion naira linked to Patience Jonathan, the wife of former President Goodluck Jonathan.

The anti-graft agency is praying the court to cease the money.

In an application filed before Justice Mojisola Olatoregun of the Federal High Court sitting in Ikoyi, Lagos, the EFCC through its counsel, Rotimi Oyedepo, asked the court to grant its prayers for the final forfeiture of the funds.

Justice Olatoregun had, on April 19, 2018, made an order of interim forfeiture of the monies, following an ex-parte application filed by the anti-graft agency against Mrs Jonathan and six other respondents.

But the counsel to Mrs. Jonathan, Ifedayo Adedipe, told the court that the EFCC had not shown any reason to warrant the final forfeiture of the money, and asked the court to refuse the application.

The counsel to the other defendants also argued that the EFCC’s application was an abuse of court process and asked that it be dismissed or struck out.

After listening to all the parties, justice Olatoregun adjourned the case till November 13, 2018, for further hearing.
