The Federal High Court Lagos on Wednesday granted a fresh exparte application by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)  for an order forfeiting the sum of $5.8 million belonging to former First Lady Dame Patience Jonathan.

EFCC wants the sum forfeited to the Federal Government pending the determination of the motion on notice.
Justice Mojisola Olatoregun held: “Order is granted as prayed”

The new order was granted 24 hours after the EFCC withdrew a pending application for stay of the court’s judgment which had earlier unfrozen Jonathan’s account.
