The saga between former First lady Dame Patience Jonathan and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has taken yet another turn after the anti-graft agency discovered an uncompleted eight-storey building in a prime area of Abuja allegedly belonging to her.

Punch reports that the building, described by the EFCC as a ‘magnificent architectural edifice,’ is valued at N6bn.

It is understood that Patience acquired the building through her foundation known as Aribawa Aurera Reach Out Foundation.

Following the discovery, the EFCC said it had written to the Corporate Affairs Commission to get the identities of the directors of the foundation who are believed to be fronts for Patience, while also petitioning the Abuja Geographical Information System to get the history of the property and how and when it was bought.

This comes months after the EFCC froze an account belonging to Aribawa Aurera Reach Out Foundation with account number 1222014221 in Ecobank with a balance of N479m, stating that there was no way Patience would have been able to afford such a property as her last known job was Permanent Secretary in Bayelsa State.

The document read, “Plot 1350 Cadastral Zone A00 CBD which was allocated to Ariwabai Aurera Reach Out Foundation in 2010 and Certificate of Occupancy issued in 2011. The plot bears an eight-storey building still under construction.

“Inference may be drawn from investigation that the suspect’s (Patience) last known official position was permanent secretary in Bayelsa State. Hence, there is no way such magnificent architectural edifices could have been built within a short space of time.

“There is a high probability that it could have been built with the proceeds of crime. It is evidently clear that it is a case of money laundering but there is a need to do more investigation.”

The commission has already proceeded to court to obtain an interim forfeiture order for the N2bn hotel and the N6bn plaza.

My advice to Patience is - when you get to court SPEAK in your MOTHER TONGUE.

If you speak in ENGLISH - you could land in MORE trouble!

You have already LIED and described yourself as a WIDOW ("my fellow widows") when your husband is ALIVE.
