Former First Lady Patience Jonathan, has reportedly ‘recovered’ her N2billion hotel which was earlier shutdown by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in June.
The anti-graft agency had in June placed the red inscriptions, ‘EFCC Under Investigation’ all over the hotel which is located near Setraco Construction Company, off the Mabushi Kado Expressway.
A source at the EFCC said it was wrong of Patience to have erased the EFCC inscription from the building.
In his reaction, Mrs. Jonathan’s lawyer, Ifedayo Adedipe (SAN), said he was not aware of the seizure of the property.
Adedipe said if the hotel in question was indeed seized through a court order, then the removal of the EFCC inscriptions would be of no effect.
We are challenging all the seizures because without prejudice to our case, Mrs. Jonathan was neither a public officer nor a contractor. So, the idea of harassing her beats my imagination.
