Youths protest in Port Harcourt over alleged victimisation on Patience Jonathan

Some youth groups in the Niger Delta on Friday took to the streets of Port Harcourt, the capital of Rivers State, to protest what they call a one sided approach in the fight against corruption.


According to them, the ongoing matter involving the former first lady, Patience Jonathan and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over the monies found in her account to the tune of 15 million Dollars, has brought the current campaign.

The head of the EFCC South-south Zone, Ishaq Saliu, said the commission would always be on the side of the law.

Last week, four companies allegedly used to launder the sum of 15, 591,700 million Dollars by Waripamo Owei-Didafa, an Aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan have pleaded guilty to the offence before a Federal High Court Sitting in Lagos on Thursday.

The monies involved in the case is the same money which former First Lady, Patience Jonathan claimed belongs to her.

Mrs Jonathan had last week filed a fundamental rights enforcement suit where she admitted ownership of the monies.

She filed a 200 million Naira fundamental rights enforcement suit against Skye Bank Plc, following the freezing of four bank accounts, which she claims the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has used to inconvenience and embarrass her.

The four accounts, lodged with Skye Bank Plc, are in the name of four companies which is said to have a balance of $31.4m

The four 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 Globus Integrated Service Limited.

  6. Misguided youth! It’s so sad that those sponsoring these youth will not allow their own children to take part in such senseless adventure.


  7. When Jonathan was eating & drinking with the former minister of federal capital Abuja we warn him to remember what happen to General Ironsi. His trust, and carefree to the north and that will consume. He gave them power like a fool instead of restructuring the nation. He wants to answer good boy. Now buhari is about to rubbish your wife / ur govt and leaving those behind. When u are president u treated them with golden hands, acting like a fool. Now they are after u, leaving the other head of states. Let those criminals around u from the north come out and talk. Your regret for life.
