Former First Lady Patience Jonathan’s bank accounts containing $19,871.307.96 have been frozen, it was learnt yesterday.

The cash is part of the $22.3 million found in the accounts.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has also established a prima facie case of money laundering against the ex-First Lady and 10 others.

The 11 suspects may face trial for alleged money laundering if the recommendation of the investigative team is upheld.

The EFCC declared that “preliminary investigation has also indicted Mrs. Patience Jonathan”.

The 10 suspects indicted in the investigation are a former Senior Special Assistant (Domestic/Household and Social Events to the former President), Dr. Dudafa Waripamo-Owei Emmanuel; Damola Bolodeoku; Dipo Oshodi; Theodora Varinik; Pluto Property and Investment Company Limited; Seagate Property Development and Investment Limited; Globus Integrated Services Limited; Trans Ocean Property and Investment Company Limited and Skye Bank Plc.

The 10th suspect, Sompre Omiebi, is said to be on the run.

The mobile phones recovered from most of the suspects have revealed how the slush funds were wired.

Mrs. Jonathan has sued Skye Bank, claiming ownership of the accounts.

She is asking for N200 million damages from the bank in addition to demanding that the lid on the accounts be lifted.

We stumbled on a report on the investigation. It states: “Based on the investigation so far carried out, the four fraudulent VISA Platinum USD card accounts used by Mrs. Patience Goodluck Jonathan has a cumulative balance of $14,029,881.79 which has been swept Post No Debit Card category.

“Again, her personal account, different from the four fraudulent VISA Platinum USD Card accounts, bears the balance of $5,841,426.17.

“Considering the above stated findings, we can safely conclude that a prima facie case of conspiracy to retain proceeds of unlawful activities, retention of the proceeds of unlawful activities, money laundering, contrary to Section 15(3) and 18(a) of the Money Laundering ( Prohibition) (Amendment) Act, 2012 and forgery contrary to Section 1(2) (c) of the Miscellaneous Offences Act, Cap M17, Laws of the Federation, 2004 have been established against the aforementioned suspects.”

The EFCC claimed that all the funds traced to Mrs Jonathan’s accounts were proceeds of gratification.

The report said: “The intelligence revealed that Dr. Dudafa Waripamo-Owei Emmanuel fraudulently received various sums of money, being proceeds of gratification and retained same on behalf of the then First Family and for himself .

“In committing the alleged offence, Dr. Dudafa Waripamo-Owei Emmanuel, in grand conspiracy with one Sompre Omiebi and Mrs. Patience Jonathan, procured the services of Mr. Dipo Oshodi, Miss Theodora Vavrinik and Mr. Damola Bolodeoku of Skye Bank Plc to launder and retain the proceeds of their unlawful activities.

“On receipt of the intelligence report, letters of investigation activities were sent to the Corporate Affairs Commission, relevant banks , communication companies, Federal Inland Revenue Service, Chief of Staff to the President, Federal Road Safety Corps and the mobile phones recovered from suspects were analysed.

“Also, the employees of various banks whose names featured, together with Dr. Dudafa Waripamo-Owei Emmanuel, were interviewed and a search carried out . Some of the purported directors and signatories to the said companies were arrested and interviewed.”

The report explained that the accumulation of the gratification funds started in 2013 with the registration of four fake firms.

The report added: “In 2013, the principal suspect, Dr. Dudafa Waripamo-Owei Emmanuel, in grand conspiracy with Sompre Omiebi and Barr. Amajuoye Azubuike fraudulently registered the following companies: (a) Pluto Property and Investment Company Limited; (b) Trans Ocean Property and Investment Company Limited; (c) Globus Integrated Service Limited; ( d) Seagate Property Development and Investment Limited.

“However, the following persons , Taiwo Ebenezer, Chima John, Friday Davis, Olalekan Bello, Asuquo Charles, Kola Frederick, Rasak Gbodiyam, Ebi Attah, Agbo Baro and Olugbenga Isaiah, named as the purported directors of the companies, have denied knowledge of the registration and any interest in the companies.

“That after the fraudulent registration, the principal suspect, Dr. Dudafa Waripamo-Owei Emmanuel, conspired with Sompre Omiebi and three officials of the Skye Bank Plc, namely Dipo Oshodi, Theodora Varinik and Damola Bolodeoku, to fraudulently open current and VISA Platinum Credit Card ( USD) accounts for the companies.

“That in opening account Nos: 1771420773 and 2110002238 for Pluto Property and Investment and Company Limited in Skye Bank Plc, Dr. Dudafa Waripamo-Owei Emmanuel, Sompre Omiebi and Skye Bank officials, namely Dipo Oshodi, Theodora Varinik and Damola Bolodeoku, also fraudulently used the details of one Friday Davies and Toru Inoyengibuomo( who have been found to be staff of NIMASA) .

“That in opening account Nos: 1771421299 0and 2110002269 for Globus Integrated Services Limited Dr. Dudafa Waripamo-Owei Emmanuel, Sompre Omiebi and Skye Bank officials namely Dipo Oshodi, Theodora Varinik and Damola Bolodeoku also fraudulently used the details of one Razak Gbodiyam and Ebi Attah as the signatories to the accounts.

“That in opening account Nos: 1771420780and 2110002207 for Seagate Property Development and Investment Limited, Dr. Dudafa Waripamo-Owei Emmanuel, Sompre Omiebi and Skye Bank officials namely Dipo Oshodi, Theodora Varinik and Damola Bolodeoku also fraudulently used the details of one Agbo Baro and Olugbenga Isaiah as the signatories to the accounts.

“That though these fraudulent accounts do not have Biometric Verification Numbers(BVN), the Skye Bank officials allowed their cronies to use and operate the accounts.

“That all the driver’s licences used as a means of identification of the purported signatories have been found to be forged.

“That all these fraudulent accounts were opened with the consent of Mrs. Patience Goodluck Jonathan.

“Furthermore, investigation has revealed that all VISA Platinum USD cards in respect of the above mentioned accounts were picked up by Mr. Dipo Oshodi and Damola Bolodeoku of Skye Bank Plc from the bank and handed over to Mrs. Patience Goodluck Jonathan.”

EFCC detectives gave the breakdown of how funds were wired into nine USD accounts believed to have been opened with fraudulent names and operated by Mrs. Jonathan.

The report said: “That looking at the various Visa Platinum USD Card accounts, the sum of $5,114,609.00 were lodged into the account of Globus Integrated Services Limited out of which the sum of $753,206.76 has been spent by Mrs. Patience Jonathan, leaving a balance of $4,361,393.24, which is currently on Post No Debit Status.

  4. You are the supposedly stupid person here, you are the tribalist who can't ask simple question of how did someone found the money and why opening 4 accounts on different persons name and want to be some signatory? It's corruption and if she claims to own the cash she then has to be probed.

  5. Am just so amazed by the low level thinking of some people. Nigeria can't be great if we still fill our hearts with sentiments and tribalism. The ex-first lady has laundered money and the law should take its course.

  7. @Anon 6:55 and 7:22, Buhari government is not stupid, instead u are the moron and the biggest F00L on earth for sounding so stupid. I'm sure u can not even boast of 3 square meal a day yet u are here supporting thieves. For ur information it is corruption that has kept nigeria in this condition we are today that make ur life so miserable. Stop supporting evil and pray for nigeria

  8. Anonymous 6:55am has inadvertently supported corruption without realizing it or perhaps, he has not read the revelation very well. All these looting would have been swept under the rug had God forsaken Nigeria and returned GEJ to power in 2015 election. Quoting the late sage, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, "A worst democratic government is better than a benevolent Military government". If all that has been discovered from the officials in GEJ administration is anything to go by, no matter the situation, I still prefer APC government to the bunch of treasury looters called PDP.

  9. Even if GEJ had served Nigeria while unborn, it does not stop his wife from being probed.

  10. Sentimental bigots in here..... He or she who airs pays!!!! Fashola 70 million Naira setting up a website was an Issue, Amaechi unfounded accusation of loot in Rivers is an issue, Mrs Buhari unfounded Halliburton fingered Accusation was an issue, but a non-portfolio multi dollar account holder should not be question, its a shame!!!!

  11. It is a pity to u Mr anonymous dat called Buhari govt a stupid one. I am sure u are from the Niger Delta region where I equally came from. We claim other regions eg Lagos was built out of Niger Delta wealth. Our Sons and daughters were given the opportunities to build Niger Delta but they diverted the money to personal accounts. For as long as we continue to make these criminals are heroes and legends in Niger Delta and our youths refused to see beyond their nose, Niger Delta will remain as it is till thy kingdom come. This is bitter to hear anyway but the truth.

  12. This illiterate anonymous who can't write correct English should stop commenting on public issues. Nigeria can survive without Niger Delta. What is happening affects all of us even ND itself. Corruption is corruption, it doesn't matter who is involved. If GEJ's wife were sincere, she didn't need several fake accounts. It's a pity Nigerian's tribal sentiments will land us at the bottom of the world's development ladder.

  17. Thank u @Ayotunde.This people are bloody bastards and perhaps d region deserve to be in a shitty state with people who have this myopic mindset.Everything is witch hunt when they come for their corrupt leaders,is dansuki from the south south ? Is badeh from the south south ? Is saraki from the south south ? Is fayose from the south south ?I have been an advocate of the south south but this is insane,people like this need to be prosecuted n jailed so the needful can be done in that region.As it is,this thieves calls d shot and as long as they are there,the south south will forever be a dump because,the money needed to develop d region will forever end up in their hands to settle the militants,to live lavish lifestyle while d masses continue to live in penury.By the way,this applies to all region,enough is enough,we have no meaningful development to show since independence and this so called leeches call themselves leaders!!! In a developed world,they would've been assassinated left and right,but because of poverty and greed,our people celebrate them while selling the birth right of their children like Esau sold his to Jacob for porridge.

  19. You all are very stupid for insulting our daughter and sister. Does the money belong to the West or North. It is from our oil and our land. Did we ask how and what you spent your useless cocoa and groundnut on, so why the foolish interest in how she got the money which is from our oil.
