THE Federal High Court, sitting in Abuja yesterday fixed April 30 to rule on an application seeking the forfeiture of two properties belonging to former First lady Patience Jonathan to the Federal Government.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on October 20, 2017 filed an ex parte application praying the court for an order of interim forfeiture of some properties belonging to the former first lady.
This was with particular reference to the property at Plot No. 1758, Cadastral Zone, Mabushi and Plot No.1350, Cadastral Zone, Central Business District, Abuja.
The EFCC through its counsel Mr Benjamin Mangi, told the court that the application was predicated on the fact that the property was a subject matter of investigation, enquiry and examination.
Jonathan’s lawyer, Mr Mike Ozekhome (SAN), filed an application seeking to stop the ex parte motion on the grounds that the properties were already a subject matter of litigation.
Justice Dimgba adjourned the matter until April 30 for ruling
