The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has arrested four domestic servants, including a driver and a houseboy, whose names were used to open bank accounts for the wife of former President Goodluck Jonathan, Mrs Dame Patience.
According to a report by Punch, sources within the anti-graft agency disclosed on that the companies’ accounts were opened at Skye Bank.
The companies are Pluto Property and Investment Company Limited, Seagate Property Development and Investment Company Limited, Trans Ocean Property and Investment Company Limited and Globus Integrated Service Limited.
The accounts of the four companies, which have since been frozen by the EFCC, have a balance of about $15m while another account, which bears Patience Jonathan’s name, has $5m.
Mr. Sammie Somiari, who deposed to an affidavit on behalf of the ex-President’s wife, said the former First Lady was the owner of the money in the accounts.
She had revealed that she gave millions of dollars to the then Special Adviser to the President on Domestic Affairs, Waripamowei Dudafa, to open accounts for her.
