Politics Patience Jonathan Suffers Setback As Court Adjourns $15m Account Case



A federal court in Lagos has adjourned to March 6, 2017 the suit filed by former first lady, Patience Jonathan, seeking to un-freeze bank accounts she says belong to her.

According to Premium Times, the judge adjourned the case on the requests of some of the defence counsel representing companies linked to Mrs. Jonathan for more time to study the case.

Patience Jonathan had sued the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, demanding $200 million as damages, after the agency froze the bank accounts containing a total of $15 million.


Meanwhile, Members of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have met with former president Goodluck Jonathan.

The meeting is being held at the home of the ex-president in Abuja. The delegation was led by Professor Jerry Gana to present party reports to the ex-Nigerian leader.
