Patience Jonathan Raises Alarm With Claims Of EFCC Planning To Assassinate Her

Nigeria’s former First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, has alleged that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC , hired assassins to kill her.

She made the claims in a letter written to the House of Representatives on Monday, July 10, adding that she had survived two assassination attempts on her life, believed to have been championed by the anti-graft agency.


Patience Jonathan pleaded with the lower chamber of the National Assembly to come to her rescue before the anti-corruption agency succeeds in its plot to terminate her life.

As revealed in the letter written by her lawyers, Granville Abibo (SAN) & Co, Mrs. Jonathan said the attempt on her life was made between February and April 2017.

“There have been assassination attempts, at least twice, between February and April, 2017, against our client ostensibly by the operatives of the EFCC along the Yenagoa-Mbaima Road, Bayelsa State, in furtherance of its unlawful actions against the former first family,” the letter stated.

Mrs. Patience Jonathan also claimed that the anti-graft agency had bugged her phones and that she has been receiving threatening text messages from its agents.

“The EFCC and its agents have repeatedly bugged the personal telephones of our client and her relations through its many operatives and has inundated her with numerous threatening calls and text messages,” the former president’s wife alleged.

Mrs. Jonathan further accused the officials of the Federal Inland Revenue Service, FIRS, of vandalizing her properties in her hotel located in Bayelsa state two months ago.

The letter added, “On May 3, 2017, officials of the FIRS, in a convoy of about 20 trucks and over 70 personnel, raided our client’s NGO – Aridolf Jo Resort Wellness and Spa Limited – situated at Kpansia Expressway, Bayelsa State, and orchestrated a massive destruction of personal properties belonging to our client without any lawful court order or search warrant and caused mayhem there under the guise of trying to collect unpaid taxes without following any due process provided by law to do so.”

Despite the accusations leveled against the EFCC, the commission’s spokesman, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, refused to react when he was contacted on the telephone on Monday, July 10.

Meanwhile, the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, has disclosed that two army officers connived with two employees of a popular commercial bank to divert millions from the account of the Military Pensions Board.

In a letter addressed to the Chief of Defence Staff, dated May 23, 2017, Mr. Magu alleged that the suspects who were later charged with fraud offences on May 31, 2017, opened 33 accounts with the bank (name withheld) in which they deposited the MPB funds worth N339,374,478.58.

According to the acting anti-graft chairman, the huge sum of money was withdrawn from the MPB account across the counter and transferred to other accounts in the bank.
