Patience Jonathan: Ex-First Lady loses $5.9m to FG at Appeal Court

Patience Jonathan loses $5.9m to FG at Appeal Court

Her appeal against the temporary forfeiture of the sum to the FG was dismissed for lacking merit.

Former First Lady, Patience Jonathan has lost her motion filed before the Court of Appeal to reverse the temporary forfeiture order granted by a Federal High Court on the sum of $5.9 million discovered in her Skye Bank account.

In a ruling delivered by the Lagos division of the Court of Appeal on Friday, January 12, 2018, the appellate court threw out Jonathan's appeal.

In a judgement read by Justice Mojeed Owoade, her appeal against the forfeiture of the sum, suspected to be proceeds of crime, was dismissed for lacking merit.
