    The EFCC has now obtained another court order to freeze the accounts.

    The former first lady had sued the bank for N200 million damages for disclosing her personal information to the EFCC

    The anti-graft agencies froze the four accounts with total balance $30.1 million, which has now become a matter before a Federal High Court in Lagos.

    Mrs Jonathan’s lawyers have petitioned the EFCC chairman stating she owned the money—that it was part of her medical savings she spent when she was abroad for medical attention.

    Some protesters have also been heckling the federal high court hearing the case.
