A federal high court sitting in Lagos has ordered freezing of multiple accounts belonging to Patience Jonathan.
Mrs. Patience had earlier laid claims to $31.4 million seized by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The order given by the court followed an ex-parte motion filed by Rotimi Oyedepo, the prosecuting counsel.
Rotimi Oyedepo prayed that the court give an order for the freezing of the accounts to “prevent further tampering.”
The judge, Mojisola Olatoregun ruling on the application has ordered the EFCC to sign an undertaking to pay for damages if the order was not meant to be given by the court.
One of the accounts with Skye Bank is said to have a balance of $5,316.66.
Also affected by the freezing order are; Inchley Top Homes Limited, Aribawa Aruera, Magel Resort Limited, AM -PM Global Network Limited and Pansy Oil and Gas Limited.
Aribawa Aruera, which has an account with Ecobank, has a closing balance of N479,893,431.01, while Magel Resort Limited has an account with Fidelity Bank and a balance of N1,000,494,000, and Esther Oba, a balance of $429,381.87.
