EFCC moves to seize fresh Patience Jonathan’s $8.4m, N7.3bn

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has started a fresh move to seize funds in 15 bank accounts linked with the wife of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Patience.

The funds, which the EFCC is seeking to seize, include a total of $8,435,788.84 and over N7.35bn.

The EFCC had on Monday morning appeared before Justice Mojisola Olatoregun of the Federal High Court in Lagos with an ex parte application, seeking the temporary forfeiture of the funds.

The move was, however, interrupted by a train of Senior Advocates of Nigeria led by Mr. Ifedayo Adedipe (SAN) and Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), who challenged the court’s jurisdiction to entertain the ex parte application.
