An application by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission seeking to seize the funds in 15 bank accounts linked to Mrs. Patience Jonathan has been rejected by a Federal High Court In Lagos.

Delivering her judgement, Justice Mojisola Olatoregun rejected the ex parte application filed by the EFCC for the seizure of the funds, on the grounds that the funds were already subject of litigation before two other judges.

The funds, which the EFCC sought to seize include a total of $8,435,788.84 and over N7.35bn.
