Wow! Patience Jonathan will spend $5.8m
Lagos Court unblocks Patience Jonathan’s $5.8m
A Federal High court in Lagos has unfrozen the domiciliary account of Patience Jonathan containing $5,842,316.66 at Skye bank Plc.The order of the court was sequel to an application argued by her lawyer Mr. Adedayo Adedipe SAN, leading seven other lawyers.
Adedipe urged the court to unfreeze the account on the ground that Patience Jonathan was not a party in the suit leading to the order made by the court.
Mr Adedipe while citing judicial authorities contended that the order was an abuse of court process as the court has no jurisdiction to make an order against a party that is not a party in a suit filed before the court.
The EFCC which initiated the suit leading to the order made by the court freezing the account did not file any response to the application filed to discharge the order.
