Patience Jonathan Asks Court To Jail Bank CEOs Over Frozen Accounts

Former Nigerian First Lady, Mrs Patience Jonathan, has approached the Federal High Court in Abuja, asking it to commit three bank Executives to prison over their alleged refusal to unfreeze 10 bank accounts belonging to her companies.

In a contempt charge she filed through her team of lawyers led by Chief I. A. Adedipe, SAN, and Chief Mike Ozekhome, SAN, the former first lady, wants the three bank executives jailed for their “persistent and flagrant disobedience” of a court order that granted her access to the accounts containing aggregate sums of $5.8million and N3.5billion.

Mrs. Jonathan listed the alleged Contemnors as the Group Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of First Bank Nigeria Plc, Dr. Adesola Adeduntan, the Chief Executive Officer of Skye Bank Plc, Mr. Tokunbo Abiru and the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Diamond Bank Plc, Uzoma Dozie.

She told the court that the banks blocked her and representatives of her companies from withdrawing funds from the accounts, despite an order the court made on December 5, 2017, which lifted a Post-No-Bill order the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, placed on 16 separate accounts that were linked to her.

Justice Nyako fixed April 11 to hear the matter.

    1. She is right. As long as the courts have spoken, the banks can only appeal the judgement.
