Former first lady, Patience Jonathan, has written
a letter to the EFCC explaining how $15 million
entered her account. In a letter with reference
number GA/Abibo/00226/2016, written by her
lawyers, Granville Abibo (SAN) and Co, and
addressed to the Acting Chairman of the EFCC,
Ibrahim Magu, the former first lady said the $15
million which has been seized by the antigraft
agency, was for her medical bills and other
personal expenses, according to Sahara
“It is noteworthy to emphasise that the said
accounts, which were in US dollar
denomination, were card-based accounts and
our client is the sole signatory to these
accounts. However, our client has been
operating the said accounts using the cards
for her medical bill payments and purchases
for her private purposes without any let or
hindrance. Our client was therefore surprised
when the said cards stop functioning on July
7, 2016, or thereabout. Our client immediately,
thereupon, contacted Skye Bank Plc through
our solicitors. It was only then that the bank
officials informed our client that the said
accounts were placed on a ‘No Debit Order’
following investigations and instruction from
your commission and this is without notice to
our client by either the bank or the
commission. It is in the light of the foregoing
that we urge you to use your good offices to
vacate the ‘No Debit/Freezing Order’ placed
on the said accounts.”
Patience in the letter stated that the operatives
of the antigraft agency have refused to
acknowledge her explanation
“Despite the foregoing, our client, who is a
law-abiding citizen, has watched with surprise
how efforts are being made surreptitiously to
indirectly harass or harangue her and short-
change her of her personal funds in breach of
her fundamental human rights. We urge you
sir, to kindly intervene to stop the untoward
and wrongful actions of your officials to
embarrass, inconvenience and short-change
our client.”the letter said
Patience Jonathan during her husband’s time in
office had seven surgeries within a month for an
undisclosed ailment in Germany. During a
thanksgiving service in February 2013, she
revealed that she lost consciousness for a week
during one of her surgeries.
