Patience Jonathan Dares EFCC, ‘Recovers’ N2bn Seized Hotel
The face-off between the wife of former President Goodluck Jonathan, Patience, and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is in the news again.
The anti-graft agency had in June placed the red inscriptions, ‘EFCC Under Investigation’ all over the hotel which is located near Setraco Construction Company, off the Mabushi Kado Expressway.
Findings showed that the EFCC inscriptions had been erased and patched with grey paint.
One of the workers in the hotel was quoted as saying, “Go and ask the EFCC if they had the right to put their sign all over the building in the first place. If you want more information, go and ask madam.”
A source at the EFCC said it was wrong of Patience to have erased the EFCC inscription from the building.
He said, “Sometimes when we are investigating some politically exposed persons, they immediately begin to sell off their buildings in order to cover their tracks and run away with the cash so that is why we put EFCC signs on the buildings so that innocent people will not buy those buildings."
