The wife of former President Goodluck Jonathan, Patience, has accused the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission of making a mockery of the judiciary.
This was contained in an application, which she filed through her lawyers, Mr. Ifedayo Adedipe (SAN) and Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), seeking to reclaim the sums of $8,435,788.84 and N7.35bn seized from her by the EFCC.
The EFCC said it found the money in 15 bank accounts linked with Patience, saying it believed the money originated from the coffers of the Bayelsa State Government, where Patience, at a time, served as a permanent secretary.
The EFCC alleged that Patience gained access to the funds by fraudulently assuming the identity of one Esther Oba as the signatory to the accounts.
