Patience Jonathan: Federal High Court Should Strike out Case against Me

Patience, wife of former President Goodluck Jonathan, has asked the Federal High Court in Lagos to strike out an ex-parte application filed against her by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
The application is seeking temporary forfeiture of her $8,435,788.84 and N7.35 billion.
She is also praying the court for an order striking out the motion filed last December 13 on the ground that the court lacked jurisdiction to hear it.

Mrs Jonathan said the EFCC’s motion was “a gross abuse of court process” because the issues were already pending before Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja.
“The ex parte originating summons filed by the EFCC amounts to forum shopping, thus an abuse of court process,” she said.

However, hearing was stalled in the case, yesterday, due to Justice Olatoregun’s absence.

The case was adjourned till today, Tuesday.
