Abuja - The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has frozen a Skye Bank account belonging to former First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan with a balance of $5m, reports Punch
The EFCC's action came a day after Patience Jonathan gave the ant-graft agency a 14-day ultimatum to de-freeze some accounts it had frozen, which she claimed were her's but opened in some names different from her's.
The former First Lady according to News 24 had threatened to file a N5 billion suit against the EFCC if it fails to unfreeze her personal account within the next 14 days
The fresh move was taken following the establishment of a prima facie case against the former President Goodluck Jonathan’s wife.

The former First Lady has been under the radar of the anti-graft agency for financial-corruption allegation and had placed restrictions on account she claimed to be hers.
The anti-graft agency is insisting that she must provide information on how she got the money
