BREAKING: Patience Jonathan forfeits $8.4 million, N9.2 billion to FG

The Federal High Court in Lagos on Monday has ordered the forfeiture of the former First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan’s $8.4 million and N9.2 billion to the Federal Government.

Justice Mojisola Olatoregun held that the money is reasonably suspected to be proceeds of crime as Mrs Jonathan could not prove that the money was legitimately earned.

She therefore granted an application by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) that the money should be permanently forfeited.
