Jonathan’s N6Billion Worth Secret Mansion Discovered By EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC) has uncovered an uncompleted eight-storey building in Abuja allegedly belonging to former First Lady, Patience Jonathan.

In a document, which has been attached to a court application, the anti-graft agency said it had written to the Corporate Affairs Commission to get the identities of the directors of the foundation who are believed to be fronts for Patience.

The document reads, “Plot 1350 Cadastral Zone A00 CBD which was allocated to Ariwabai Aurera Reach Out Foundation in 2010 and Certificate of Occupancy issued in 2011. The plot bears an eight-storey building still under construction.

“Inference may be drawn from an investigation that the suspect’s (Patience) last known official position was Permanent Secretary in Bayelsa State. Hence, there is no way such magnificent architectural edifices could have been built within a short space of time.

“There is a high probability that it could have been built with the proceeds of crime. It is evidently clear that it is a case of money laundering but there is a need to do more investigation.”

The anti-graft agency, it was learnt, had proceeded to court to obtain an interim forfeiture order for the N6bn plaza.

According to the document, “In view of the foregoing, I request for an interim forfeiture order on the two properties amongst others linked to the suspect and believed to have been acquired from the proceeds of crime.

“This is particularly very important because attempts to mark the properties were resisted and even the portion that was successfully marked was later cleaned off by the agents of the suspect.”
