Nigeria: Things fall apart for former first lady Patience Jonathan 1

Cameroon Concord News has learned that things are not looking good for Patience Jonathan, former first lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

After the freezing of her bank accounts, there are reports that financial crime experts have begun listing and confiscating material assets belonging to Patience Jonathan. Nigeria’s anti-corruption body, the EFCC has ordered detectives to identify the houses and property belonging to Patience in cities like Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt and Yenagoa.

Pending the outcome of this action, a federal court in Lagos has fixed the 7th of December 2016 as the date to hear the complaint filed by Mrs. Jonathan for her bank accounts to be unfrozen. She is also asking the government of Nigeria to pay her the sum of 200 million dollars in damages for violating her rights.
