It is no news that Former First Lady Mrs. Patience Jonathan has been in troubled waters with the Economic and Finacial Crimes Commission( EFCC). In a recent report Patience Jonathan claimed in a letter advocating to the House of Representative to intervene as EFCC’s attempts to assinate her.

According to her, “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.”

Asides the EFCC, the Anti-Graft Agency have also been accused of bugging her telephone lines. Patience Jonathan alleged that agents of the commission have been sending her threatening text messages.

She said, “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.”

Patience Jonathan went further to accuse Federal Inland Revenue Service of terrorising her.  She alleged officials of the FIRS of barging into her hotel in Bayelsa State two months ago and damaging the property there in.

According to her, “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.”

Asides freezing her bank accounts, the commission was accused of freezing accounts of her relatives and her NGOs, while also seizing property belonging to her NGO. She explained that the NGO was created to carry out charity works for the good of Nigeria.
