Patience Jonathan Discloses What Actually Happened, Says Police Found Nothing In Raid On Her Property
The immediate past First Lady of Nigeria, Patience Jonathan, has said there was nothing incriminating found in her house when members of Nigeria police force searched her family home.
Speaking through her lawyer Charles Ogboli, Patience Jonathan claimed that only cheque books, including one from Diamond Bank were found in the premises.
She also explained that it was the police that conducted the search not the EFCC as widely reported.
According to the former First Lady, the police disclosed that it was the attitude of the security man that forced them to conduct a search in the premises.
She nevertheless, decried the embarrassing situation where a building will be searched in the absence of the occupant.
“EFCC came last year and conducted a search in the absence of the occupant of the house.
“The NDLEA also searched the same building. This also happened last year between November or thereabouts. It is an embarrassment.
“I don’t know what they are actually looking for. Why are they searching a premises in the absence of the occupant?
“It appears there is something they want to do there.”
Dame Patience Jonathan continued:
“Today, it is not EFCC, but in the past, from November 2016, EFCC raided the place.
“It is a family house meant for the brothers and sisters; the siblings. It is a family house of the former First Lady in Maitama, Abuja.
“EFCC raided the place last year. Thereafter, NDLEA raided the place and throughout their raid, they found nothing incriminating.
“Today, I got information that there were several policemen numbering about 20 to 28 of them”.
“So, when I got there, I demanded to see the leader of the team and I was directed to an Assistant Commissioner of Police, who was in mufti and known as Williams.
“I asked him which of the command are you from and he said they were from IG’s Special Unit.
“Somebody also in mufti intervened and said they are from the AGF, Attorney General’s office.
“He told me that they came to search the house of a judge.
“But because of the attitude of the security man, they decided to now move into the house (Patience Jonathan’s family building) and search the house.
“They forced the door open and searched everything. At the end, they asked the security man to sign that nothing incriminating was found.
“They took away three cheque books and a company iron seal.
“The company seal does not belong to the former first lady because she is not staying there. The company is not known to the first lady.”
Meanwhile, reports that the EFCC had raided the home of former President Goodluck Jonathan and whisked him away has now been proved to be untrue.
