Former first lady, Patience Jonathan, has asked the Federal High Court Ikoyi Lagos ‎to order the EFCC to pay her $200 million for seizing her $15m found in the accounts of 4 companies currently being investigated for money laundering. ‎

The EFCC had in July placed a ‘No Debit Order’ on the four accounts which were uncovered during the investigation of a former Special Adviser on Domestic Affairs to ex-President Jonathan, Waripamo-Owei Dudafa who had allegedly opened the accounts on behalf of Patience Jonathan.

Patience Jonathan filed a suit against the antigraft agency and Skye Bank, challenging the seizure of her account. ‎She wants the court to order EFCC to remove the ‘No Debit Order’ placed on her $15 million. She is also asking the court to order Skye Bank to pay her damages in the sum of N200m for what she termed a violation of her right to own personal property under Section 44 of the 1999 Constitution.
