Patience Jonathan Defeats EFCC In Court As Application For Seizure Of Assets Is Rejected

Former First Lady, Mrs. Patience Jonathan on Friday got one over the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, as her tussle with the ant-graft agency continued.

Mrs. Jonathan’s win came when the Federal High Court in Lagos rejected an application filed by EFCC seeking to seize funds in 15 bank accounts linked to the former First Lady.

According to Punch, the funds, which the EFCC sought to seize include a total of $8,435,788.84 and over N7.35bn.

Justice Mojisola Olatoregun rejected the ex parte application filed by the EFCC for the seizure of the funds, saying the funds were already subject of litigation before two other judges.
