EFCC officials want to kill me - Patience Jonathan cries out

The wife of former President Goodluck Jonathan, Mrs. Patience Jonathan, has alleged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission was sending assassins after her.

Mrs. Jonathan in a letter written by her lawyers, Granville Abibo (SAN) & Co begged the House of Representatives to intervene before the EFCC would succeed in the alleged plot to eliminate her saying that she had survived two of such attempts.

Mrs. Jonathan said, “There have been assassination attempts, at least twice, between February and April, 2017, against our client ostensibly by the operatives of the EFCC along the Yenagoa-Mbaima Road, Bayelsa State, in furtherance of its unlawful actions against the former first family.”

“The EFCC and its agents have repeatedly bugged the personal telephones of our client and her relations through its many operatives and has inundated her with numerous threatening calls and text messages.”

“On May 3, 2017, officials of the FIRS, in a convoy of about 20 trucks and over 70 personnel, raided our client’s NGO – Aridolf Jo Resort Wellness and Spa Limited – situated at Kpansia Expressway, Bayelsa State, and orchestrated a massive destruction of personal properties belonging to our client without any lawful court order or search warrant and caused mayhem there under the guise of trying to collect unpaid taxes without following any due process provided by law to do so.”

She stated that apart from her bank accounts, the commission had frozen those of her relatives and her NGOs which she said were only carrying out charity work for the benefit of Nigerians. Patience said the anti-graft agency had also seized properties belonging to her NGOs.
