Abuja - The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has demanded that Attorney-General of the Federation Abubakar Malami must initiate criminal proceedings against Patience Jonathan within 7 days, The Sun reports.

"The fact that the $15 million found in the four accounts belong to Mrs Jonathan raises serious suspicion or, at the very least, a prima-facie case of unexplained wealth/illicit enrichment, and imposes an obligation on Mrs Jonathan to explain and justify the source(s) of the $15 million.

"In the event that she is not able to justify, explain or put forth evidence demonstrating the legitimate origin of the $15 million, SERAP urges you to take immediate steps to forfeit the asset under appropriate legal proceedings, and to institute criminal prosecution for unexplained wealth in the matter," the letter read.

According to a News24 report, Patience Jonathan addressed a letter to Ibrahim Magu, chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) explaining that the funds found in her account had been set aside for medical bills.
