A Federal High Court in Lagos on Thursday passed a ruling ordering the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to unfreeze the account of former first lady, Patience Jonathan.
The account containing $5.9 million was frozen after a Federal high court sitting in Lagos had in December ordered tbr freezing of multiple accounts allegedly owned by Mrs. Jonathan.
The court has said the money was suspected to be proceeds of crime.
The EFCC had also frozen four companies’ accounts in Skye Bank with a balance of $15,591,700 while investigating a former Special Adviser to ex-President Jonathan on Domestic Affairs, Waripamowei Dudafa.
Mrs. Jonathan had sued the EFCC claiming that the money belonged to her, while claiming they were gifts to her while ex-President Jonathan was in government.
