EFCC: Court Orders Release Of Patience Jonathan’s 5.9m Dollars !



A Federal High Court in Lagos has ordered the release of former first lady, Patience Jonathan’s bank account containing $5.9m.


Months ago, the EFCC had alleged that several bank accounts were connected and or controlled by Mrs. Jonathan which was later frozen by an order of the same Federal High Court in Lagos, over alleged criminal-related use.


According to reports, the account contained $5,316.66.


Also affected were the accounts of five companies and that of one Esther Oba that has a total balance of N7,418,829,290.94 .


The court’s order came following charges initiated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) filed by its lawyer Rotimi Oyedepo.
