Court Orders Forfeiture of Patience Jonathan’s N9.2bn, $8.4m To Federal Government
Justice Mojisola Olatoregun of the Federal High Court in Lagos on Monday ordered the permanent forfeiture of the sums of N9.2bn and $8.4m recovered from the wife of former President Goodluck Jonathan, Patience Jonathan.
This is coming after an application by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, which stated that the funds were proceeds of crime. Despite it being insisted that the funds were acquired legitimately, the court maintained that the EFCC proved its claim beyond doubts.
