Final forfeiture of Patience Jonathan’s $5.8m, N2.4bn for hearing April 13

Final forfeiture of Patience Jonathan’s $5.8m, N2.4bn for hearing April 13


A Federal High Court in Lagos on Monday fixed April 13 to hear an application seeking the forfeiture of $5,781,173.55 and N2.4 billion said to have been illegally acquired by former First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan.


Justice Chuka Obiozor fixed the date after hearing counsel to the parties in the suit.



The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) sometime in 2017 filed the application for the forfeiture and hearing started before Justice Mojisola Olatoregun.



The judge, on April 26, 2017, granted an order temporarily forfeiting the money found in some bank accounts run by La Wari Furniture and Baths Limited.



According to the EFCC, which filed the ex parte application, the money belonged to Mrs. Jonathan.



The interim order was affirmed by both the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court.



Following Olatoregun’s retirement from the Bench in 2019 before delivering judgment, the suit was re-assigned to Justice Obiozor with Mrs. Jonathan and La Wari Furniture and Baths Ltd as defendants.
