Frozen $15m:Four companies desert Patience Jonathan, plead guilty

The four companies with about 15.6m in their Skye Bank accounts an amount which the wife of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Patience said belongs to her, have pleaded guilty to the offence to money laundering charges.

The companies were dragged to court for the offence alongside a former Special Adviser on Domestic Affairs to ex-President Jonathan, Waripamo Dudafa, and two others.

The four companies pleaded guilty to conspiring with Dudafa and the two others to launder the sum of $15, 591,700 before a Federal High Court in Lagos on Thursday.

The companies are Pluto Property and Investment Company Limited; Seagate Property Development & Investment Co. Limited; Trans Ocean Property and Investment Company Limited and Development Company Limited and Avalon Global Property Development Company Limited.

It would be recalled that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, had since frozen the $15.6m found in the account, to which the former First Lady responded by suing the EFCC and Skye Bank, laying claims to the money.
