Patience Jonathan claims that EFCC sent assassins to kill her
Mrs. Patience Jonathan, wife of former President Goodluck Jonathan, claimed that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) sent assassins twice to eliminate her. This was revealed in a letter Patience wrote to the Federal House of Representatives through her lawyer, Granville Abibo (SAN).
In the letter written by her lawyers, Granville Abibo (SAN) & Co, Mrs. Jonathan said, “There have been assassination attempts, at least twice, between February and April, 2017, against our client ostensibly by the operatives of the EFCC along the Yenagoa-Mbaima Road, Bayelsa State, in furtherance of its unlawful actions against the former first family.”
The former President’s wife said, ‘The EFCC and its agents have repeatedly bugged the personal telephones of our client and her relations through its many operatives and has inundated her with numerous threatening calls and text messages’.
She added that apart from her bank accounts, the commission had frozen those of her relatives and her NGOs which she said were only carrying out charity work for the benefit of Nigerians.Patience said the anti-graft agency had also seized properties belonging to her NGOs.
