The former first lady Dame Patience Jonathan has been under a lot of fire recently after EFCC found a whopping sum of $31.4 million in 4 Skye Bank accounts reportedly owned by companies owned by the first lady. The companies include 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.
To explain the issues surrounding the mysterious money, the ex first lady wrote a letter to the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) stating that money connected to the financial fraud was for the payment of her medical bills which she incurred in London in 2013- If you recall the former first lady had described herself as Lazarus after she experienced a near death experience. In her words, she stated:
“It was not an easy experience for me. I actually died; I passed out for more than a week. My intestine and tummy were opened. I am not Lazarus but my experience was similar to his. My doctors said all hope was lost. A black doctor in London who is with us in this service was flown in when the situation became critical. It was God himself in His infinite mercy that said I will return to Nigeria. God woke me up after seven days. I know that some people somehow leaked the information that I was dead.”
The former first lady in her letter to the Acting Chairman of the EFCC, Mr. Ibrahim Magu by her lawyers, Granville Abibo (SAN) and Co enjoined the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and Skye Bank to lift the restriction placed on the accounts.
