EFCC lines up 13 witnesses against Patience Jonthan

23 September 2016, 15:23

Abuja - The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has tightened security around the 13 witnesses to testify on how four slush accounts were opened for former First Lady Patience Jonathan, Nation reports.

A Banker, the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) and 11 others are to testify on how four slush accounts were opened for former First Lady ahead of the trial’s resumption on September 27.

The accounts were opened by  the ex-First Lady’s  former Senior Special Assistant (Domestic / Household and Social Events to the former President), Dr. Dudafa Waripamo-Owei Emmanuel.

Dudafa and six others were last Thursday arraigned before a Federal High Court in Lagos.

Others are a lawyer Amajuoyi Briggs, a banker, Adedamola Bolodeoku;  Pluto Property and Investment Company Limited;  Trans Ocean  Property and Investment Company Limited;  Globus Integrated Service Limited; and Seagate Property Development and Investment Limited.

The EFCC on Wednesday disclosed that Former First Lady Patience Jonathan would be jailed if found guilty of the money laundering charges against her according to News24.

The chairman of the agency, Ibrahim Magu said Patience Jonathan would be investigated for the $15 591 700 she claimed belonged to her.

The account is being fingered as one of those involved in an alleged fraud case before a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos but Mrs Jonathan’s counsel, Gboyega Oduwole has filed a case before the court, informing that his client is unhappy with the EFCC over the recent move to freeze the account.
