The wife of the former President Goodluck Jonathan, Patience has been ordered to forfeit 9.2 billion naira and $8.1 million permanently to the federal government by a federal high court sitting in Lagos.
The money was recovered from the former first lady the anti-graft agency shortly after her husband was defeated by President Mohammadu Buhari in the 2015 general election.


In a judgment delivered by Justice Mojisola Olatoregun followed a lawsuit filed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Monday, said the anti-graft agency has proved its case beyond reasonable doubts.
The anti-graft agency alleged that the funds were proceeds of crime.
Mrs. Jonathan, through her lawyers, Chief Ifedayo Adedipe and Mike Ozekhome, opposed the application and insisted that the funds were legitimately earned.
However, Justice Olatoregun held that the EFCC proved its claim beyond reasonable doubts, hence the forfeiture order.
