Patience Jonathan Loses N2bn Rights Suit Against EFCC

A Federal High Court in Abuja has struck out a suit filed by former first lady, Mrs Patience Jonathan against the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The presiding judge, Justice John Tsoho who struck out the fundamental rights enforcement suit filed by Mrs Jonathan held that contrary to Mrs Jonathan’s claim of indiscriminate harassment and freezing of her accounts without invitation, the steps taken by the EFCC were upon reasonable suspicion.

The court also noted that the former first lady did not tender any verifiable evidence to show how her rights to dignity were violated.

In addition, Justice Tsoho observed that Mrs Jonathan’s lawyer failed to adduce cogent evidence showing how her residence were raided.
