Angry women invade court premise over Patience Jonathan’s frozen accounts | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

Some women on Wednesday stormed the Federal High Court in Lagos, chanting solidarity songs on the freezing order placed on the bank accounts of ex-First Lady, Mrs Patience Jonathan.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission had on Sept. 22 ordered the freezing of some bank accounts belonging to Jonathan.

The Commission had said the action was due to the ongoing investigation into the alleged money laundering charge preferred against her.

Meanwhile, Jonathan in a fundamental rights suit instituted against the EFCC, is asking for a court order, directing the unfreezing of her accounts.

She is also claiming the sum of $200m against the commission as damages for allegedly infringing on her fundamental rights.

On Wednesday, women numbering over 100, who dressed in traditional attire with head gears, stormed the premises of the Federal High Court in Lagos to protest the freezing order.

The placard-carrying women chanted songs in Ijaw and English Languages.

Some of the inscriptions read: “Ijaw people are in solidarity with Jonathan”, “Unfreeze ex-President Jonathan’s wife’s account”, “We urge EFCC to abide by the rule of law”, “Women must be heard.”

Immediately after the court rose, the women trooped in their numbers toward a vehicle belonging to the EFCC chanting solidarity songs.

Meanwhile, Justice Babs Kuewumi has fixed Dec. 7 for the hearing of the suit.
