Nigeria’s former first lady,  Patience Jonathan,  has asked the Federal High Court Ikoyi Lagos ‎to order the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to pay her $200 million for seizing her $15m  of 4 companies under investigations.

It can be recalled that in July, 2016 a ‘No Debit Order’  had been placed on the four accounts  by the EFCC which were uncovered during the investigation of a former Special Adviser on Domestic Affairs to ex-President Jonathan, Waripamo-Owei Dudafa who had allegedly opened the accounts on behalf of Patience Jonathan.

According to Vanguard, Patience Jonathan filed a suit against the antigraft agency and Skye Bank, challenging the seizure of her account. ‎She wants the court to order EFCC to remove the ‘No Debit Order’ placed on her $15 million.


Patience is not stopping there, she is also asking the court to order Skye Bank to pay her damages in the sum of N200m for what she termed a violation of her right to own personal property under Section 44 of the 1999 Constitution.

The case has been adjourned till December 7th, 2016 for hearing by the presiding judge Justice Kuewumi.
