Youths Protest Alleged Victimisation On Patience Jonathan

Niger Delta Youths Protest Alleged Victimisation On Patience Jonathan

Some youth groups in the Niger Delta on Friday took to the streets of
Port Harcourt, the capital of Rivers State, to protest what they call a one sided approach in the fight against corruption.

According to them, the ongoing matter involving the former first lady, Patience Jonathan and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over the monies found in her account to the tune of 15 million Dollars, has brought the current campaign.

The head of the EFCC South-south Zone, Ishaq Saliu, said the commission would always be on the side of the law.

Last week, four companies allegedly used to launder the sum of 15, 591,700 million Dollars by Waripamo Owei-Didafa, an Aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan have pleaded guilty to the offence before a Federal High Court Sitting in Lagos on Thursday.

The monies involved in the case is the same money which former First Lady, Patience Jonathan claimed belongs to her.

Mrs Jonathan had last week filed a fundamental rights enforcement suit where she admitted ownership of the monies.

She filed a 200 million Naira fundamental rights enforcement suit against Skye Bank Plc, following the freezing of four bank accounts, which she claims the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has used to inconvenience and embarrass her.

The four accounts, lodged with Skye Bank Plc, are in the name of four companies which is said to have a balance of $31.4m

The four companies are Pluto Property and Investment Company Limited; Seagate Property Development & Investment Co. Limited; Trans Ocean Property and Investment Company Limited and Development Company Limited and Globus Integrated Service Limited.
