12 September 2016, 07:35

Abuja - The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has confirmed the arrest of a driver, houseboy and two other domestic staff members linked to Former First Lady Patience Jonathan.

According to a Naij report, the arrests follow from the freezing of Jonathan's accounts, which were found to be linked to a $20 million money laundering case with four companies owning accounts at Skye Bank, including one in Jonathan's name containing $5 million.

Although Jonathan claimed that she had transferred millions in funds to the former Special Adviser of Domestic Affairs, Waripamowei Dudafa, to open accounts for her, in was later found that Dudafa had opened the accounts in the names of domestic servants employed by him.

"When we detained the directors, we found out that they were Dudafa’s domestic servants. One of them was a houseboy while another one was a driver. Their photographs were used in opening the accounts and their signatures were forged," an EFCC operatives revealed.

The servants have since been proven to be innocent and have been released from the custody of the anti-graft agency.

Patience Jonathan has since filed a lawsuit against Skye Bank, seeking freedom to use her accounts once again.
