Frozen $15m: Women storm court for Patience Jonathan

The Federal High Court sitting in Lagos on Wednesday was besieged by over 100 women chanting solidarity songs in support of former first lady Patience Jonathan.

Mrs. Jonathan had approached the court demanding that her accounts seized by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) be unfrozen.

She is also demanding that the anti-graft agency pays the sum of $200m as damages for allegedly infringing on her fundamental rights.

The women who dressed in traditional attire carried placards as they chanted songs in Ijaw and English Languages.

Written on some of the placards were: ‘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’.

Justice Babs Kuewumi has fixed December 7 for the hearing of the suit.
