Nobody Complained I Stole Their Money – Former First Lady, Patience Jonathan Tells Court


Last Updated on


The former First Lady told the Court that till dated, nobody has accused her of stealing money. She therefore urged the court to order the release of the $5.7m and N2.4bn seized from her by the EFCC.

Her lawyer, Chief Ifedayo Adedipe (SAN),yesterday appealed to Justice Mojisola Olatoregun to dismiss the application by the EFCC, praying that the money be permanently forfeited to the federal government.

He argued that it was wrong for the EFCC to tag the money as proceeds of crime, when the former first lady had committed no crime and when nobody complained that their money was missing.
