Court fixes date to hear Patience Jonathan’s N200m suit against EFCC

The Federal High Court in Lagos on Wednesday fixed October 16 to hear a suit by former first lady Dame Patience Jonathan against the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Mrs Jonathan had filed the suit in 2016, to challenge the order placed on four Skye Bank (now Polaris Bank Ltd) accounts having a total of $9.8 million.

She is praying the court to compel EFCC to immediately remove the “no debit order” placed on her accounts with $9.8 million.

She further seeks an order directing Polaris Bank to release forthwith, the sum of $9.8 million standing to the credit of the plaintiff, as at March 29, 2016, or any such other funds in the account.

The defendants are: Seagate Property Development and Investment Company Ltd, and Trans Ocean Property and Investment Company Ltd.

The case, which was fixed for further mention before Justice Chukwujekwu Aneke on Wednesday, has now been slated for trial on October 16.
