Ex-first lady Patience Jonathan at Skyebank to collect her money
There is a strong indication that former First Lady, Patience Jonathan, may have begun a move aimed at having access to her account in skybank frozen by the EFCC in August 2016 through a court injunction.
The amount, put at $5.9 million which a subject of the controversy was on April 7, 2017 let off the hook by the same court and without any objection by the anti graft agency.
The former first lady was said to have been at the bank until 4:05 p.m. when she departed but declined to speak to journalists at her trail, who sought to know why she was at the bank.
A source, however, disclosed that while at the bank, Mrs Jonathan briefly met an Executive Director of the bank.
One of her aides, who declined to disclose his name, told newsmen: “She is a free citizen, who can go to any place of choice including visiting her bank. ”
The account had a balance of 5.9 million dollars at the period.
The Judge, Justice Mojisola Olatoregun, set aside the that ‘No-Debit Order’ which the EFCC earlier placed on the account on allegations that the money found in it was a proceed of crime.
Looking obviously happy, Mrs. Jonathan acknowledging cheers from people around the bank’s headquarters gave a victory sign before embarking in her car.
