Court unfreezes Patience Jonathan’s account


A Federal High Court in Lagos on Thursday issued an order unfreezing the Skye Bank account of a former First Lady, Patience Jonathan.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had in November 2016, filed an application before the court, seeking an order freezing the account.

The commission had contended that the funds were reasonably suspected to be proceeds of crime. The account is said to harbour the sum of 5.8 million dollars.
