Patience Jonathan’s suit adjourned as women group storm court premises
A Federal High court has adjourned the suit filed by former first lady, Patience Jonathan, to 6th of March, seeking an order from the court for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC to unfreeze the accounts of four companies linked to Patience Jonathan indicted in a money laundering case.
Dame Patience had filed the suit against the EFCC after it froze the accounts of four companies, Pluto Property and Investment Company Limited; Seagate Property Development and Investment Company Limited; Trans Ocean Property and Investment Company Limited; and Globus Integrated Service Limited, that were linked to her.
At the hearing of the $15 million suit today, some women group stormed the court premises to show their solidarity to her.
The presiding judge of the Federal High Court sitting in Lagos adjourned the case to the 6th day of March, 2017 after counsel to some of the indicted companies, asked for more time to put his house in order.
