The Federal High Court sitting in Lagos has ordered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to unfreeze the account of the wife of former President, Patience Jonathan.

One of the accounts which contained $5.9m was frozen when the court presided over by Justice Mojisola Olatoregun in December 2016, had made the freezing order following an application for an interim injunction by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission that the accounts be frozen.

The EFCC had in an affidavit deposed to by one of its operatives, Mr. Abdulahi Tukur, told the judge that suspected proceeds of crime were retained in the accounts and urged the judge to urgently freeze the accounts pending the conclusion of its investigations.
