There was fresh drama on Wednesday as the Federal High Court Lagos ruled that former First-lady Dame Patience Jonathan should forfeit the sum of $5.9 million belonging to her.
The court gave the ruling following an application filed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
EFCC wants the sum forfeited to the Federal Government pending the determination of the motion on notice.
Justice Mojisola Olatoregun held: “Order is granted as prayed”
The new order was granted 24 hours after the EFCC withdrew a pending application for stay of the court’s judgment which had earlier unfrozen Jonathan’s account.
