EFCC making mockery of judiciary, says Patience Jonathan

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.
