Court: Patience Jonathan To Forfeit 5.8 Million Dollars
Patience would have to be more patient in her quest to recover 5.8 million dollars which she claims as personal funds.
“Order is granted as prayed”!
With those words, Justice Mojisola Olatoregun of the Federal High Court sitting in Lagos granted the EFCC's application asking that the sum be forfeited to the Federal Government pending the determination of the motion on notice.
This new order comes a day after the anti-graft agency withdrew a pending application for stay of the court’s judgment which had earlier unfrozen Patient’s account.
One of the accounts which carried the former first lady name contains $5.8m which the court said should remain frozen on the grounds that the money might be proceeds of crime.
Some of the companies indicted in the case are Finchley Top Homes, Aribawa Aruera Reachout Foundation, Magel Resort Limited and AM-PM Global Network Limited.
