Court Freezes Patience Jonathan’s Accounts In Five Banks

A Federal High Court in Lagos has frozen multiple accounts in five Nigerian banks allegedly belonging to former first lady, Patience Jonathan over allegations of money laundering.




Justice Mojisola Olatoregun made the order freezing the accounts after listening to an exparte application filed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), sometime in November.

The order, according to the Commission, covers Mrs. Jonathan’s accounts in Ecobank Plc, Skye Bank Plc, Stanbic IBTC Bank, Diamond Bank Plc and Fidelity Bank Plc.

The anti-graft agency said that the move to request the freezing of the accounts became necessary after it received intelligence report, which showed that the accounts ought to be investigated.

The ex-parte application to freeze the accounts was supported by an originating summons sworn to by one Abdulahi Tukur, an operative of EFCC, and filed before the court by the EFCC prosecutor, Rotimi Oyedepo.

It requested the court to urgently direct the managers of the bank accounts to, in the interim, forfeit the money in the accounts, to prevent further tampering with same.

After issuing the order, Justice Olatoregun directed the anti-graft agency to enter into an undertaking to pay damages to the former first lady if it turns out that the order should not have been made.

One of the account, domiciled with Skye Bank plc, is said to have a balance of $5,316.66.

Also affected by the order are five companies namely; Finchley Top Homes Limited, Aribawa Aruera, Magel Resort Limited, AM-PM Global Network Limited and Pansy Oil and Gas Limited.

Also affected is one Esther Oba who is said to have a balance of $429,381.87 in her Diamond Bank account while the companies collectively have a balance totaling N7,418,829,290.94 (Seven billion four hundred and eighteen million eight hundred and twenty nine thousand two hundred and ninety naira ninety four kobo).

    1. This should teach us a lesson. We as a people should be united. We shouldn't fight and destroy ourselves, rather we should fight to settle our differences as brothers. It is when we are united we can fight outsiders and win. We are suppose to be brothers but when u fight to kill me, I will run away and go join others to fight u back. He who has sense should learn from this.

  2. Good for her and her husband. If they weren't stupid enough to hand over very sensitive positions to their enemies(aboki), they would have still been in power. One of the cardinal rules of power is: never you empower your enemies; do all you can to emasculate them. Which is exactly what Buhari is doing. Later we go talk say aboki no get sense.

  17. The way things are going in this country. I smell war. Don't curse me. Pls spare me the l reject it syndrome. Watch the hand writings. Baba Buhari is busy writing with pen which is very difficult to clean. I wish he can start using pencils which can at least be cleaned with eraser. Lion of the tribe of Judea. The reason of christmans. Look down and save Nigeria.
