Supreme Court Backs FG’s Seizure Of Patience Jonathan’s $8.4m
Former Nigerian first lady Patience Jonathan

The Supreme Court on Friday upheld the order of temporary forfeiture made by a Federal High Court in Lagos on the $8.4million traced by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to former First Lady, Mrs. Patience Jonathan.

A five-man panel of the court in their judgement unanimously held that the appeal filed by Mrs. Jonathan, challenging the interim forfeiture, was without merit.

The court ordered Mrs. Jonathan to go before the Federal High Court to justify her ownership of the money to prevent its permanent forfeiture to the Federal Government.
