Patience Jonathan linked to $20 million financial scandal

11 September 2016, 12:49

Abuja - The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) claims that it has traced an additional $5 million dollars to the account of former First Lady Patience Jonathan.

According to Naij, the anti-graft agency had initially traced $15 million to Jonathan's account, bringing the total amount to $20 million in an investigation relating to a money laundering case.

Jonathan's link to the case followed on from an investigation into the financial dealings of former Special Adviser on Domestic Affairs to Goodluck Jonathan, Waripamowei Dudafa, with the EFCC tracing four company accounts to him with a balance of $15 million.

Dudafa and all four companies were subsequently charged with money laundering.

Patience Jonathan has since had her account frozen, with the former First Lady suing Skye Bank over the development.

In her fundamental rights suit, Patience Jonathan has urged the courts to compel the EFCC to remove the No Debit Order placed on her accounts with immediate effect.
