The wife of former President (Goodluck Jonathan), Dame Patience Jonathan has on friday urged the Federal High Court in Lagos to order the release of the $5.7m and N2.4bn seized from her by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

Her lawyer, Chief Ifedayo Adedipe (SAN), urged Justice Mojisola Olatoregun to drop the application by the EFCC, hoping that the money be permanently forfeited to the Federal Government.

“It is settled law that suspicion, no matter how grave, can never amount to legal evidence to prove the guilt or culpability of anyone either in criminal or civil proceedings”, he said.

He further adjoined that a Manager of La Wari Furniture and Baths, Mrs Oyewole Yemisi, when also interrogated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), claimed not to know anything about the company and that her signature was falsified.
