Patience Jonathan may lose $26 million to Nigeria as affected companies plead guilty

There was a momentary hush inside the courtroom after a representative of  Pluto Property and Investment Company Limited, the first of the four companies involved in a $26 million money laundering case linked to former First Lady, Patience Jonathan, abruptly pleaded guilty before the judge.

The representatives of the other three companies – Sea Gate Property Development and Investment Company Limited; Trans Ocean Property and Investment Company Limited; and Avalon Global Property Development Company Limited – followed suit and pleaded guilty before Justice Babivision of the Federal High Court.

Waripamo Dudafa, who served as Special Adviser on Domestic Affairs to former President Goodluck Jonathan; Amajuoyi Briggs, a former presidential aide; and Adedamola Bolodeoku, a former Skye Bank official, who were arraigned alongside the companies, however, pleaded not guilty.

The judge adjourned till September 27th for trial.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission arraigned the suspects on a 15-count amended charge of money laundering, stealing, and forgery totalling $15.5 million before Mr. Kuewumi.

According to the EFCC, the offences were committed between November 2013 and May 2015.

In Count 1, the suspects were accused of conspiring to launder $15.5 million “on or about the 13th of November 2013.”

Counts 2 – 9 accused them of stealing of various sums ranging from $250,000 to $1.2 million.

Counts 10 – 15 said Messrs Dudafa, Briggs, Bolodeoku, and one Sompre Omiebi (who is still at large) forged documents to open accounts in Skye Bank and Wema Bank in the name of the listed companies.

During their investigations, the EFCC had frozen the accounts.

But last week, Mrs. Jonathan filed a fundamental rights enforcement suit before the court claiming ownership of the money found in the companies’ accounts, asking that the ‘no-debit’ order placed on them be lifted.

In an affidavit deposed to by one Sammie Somiari, a lawyer, Mrs. Jonathan said she asked Mr. Dudafa to assist her to open the bank accounts which the EFCC had frozen.

The former First Lady said the monies were meant for her medical treatment.

‘Joint trial’

Before the pleas were read, the first three defendants’ lawyers argued that the four companies’ representatives – who did not have legal counsels – ought to provide a letter from their respective companies authorizing them to appear before the judge.

“Anybody can be called upon from the street to come and represent a company,” said Tochukwu Onyiuke, counsel to the second defendant, Mr. Briggs.

Gboyega Oyewole, counsel to Mr. Dudafa, said the defendants were in a joint trial.

“It cannot be severed,” he said.

“Whatever plea pleaded by the defendants will tell on the companies. Worst case scenario, my Lord will discountenance them and enter a not guilty plea for them.”

But Rotimi Oyedepo, counsel to the EFCC, argued that the representatives were listed as directors in the companies’ Corporate Affairs Commission registration records.

“If they (defence counsels) are objecting to their plea being taken, it is extremely immature to bring it up at this stage, it is after their plea had been taken,” said Mr. Oyedepo.

“If they want us to show that the persons appearing the court are listed in the CAC as directors, we have the proof.”

After the plea was read, the judge granted Messrs Briggs and Bolodeoku bail in the sum of N250 million each, with two sureties.

The judge refused to allow Mr. Dudafa to continue on a bail granted him in another trial before a different judge, remanding him in prison and insisting that his lawyer must file a bail application before his court.

Jiti Ogunye, a Lagos based lawyer, told PREMIUM TIMES that the implication of the companies’ representatives pleading guilty means the money found in the bank accounts would be forfeited to the Nigerian government.

“The companies’ representatives cannot be sent to prison because they are not charged as individuals,” Mr. Ogunye said.

“The company that pleaded guilty, of course, cannot be made to serve custodial punishment. But is it very instructive that they pleaded guilty realizing that it doesn’t make any sense of them to deny such an obvious guilt on their part.”

As the case continues, it is not clear how much Mrs. Jonathan can do to prove the money truly belongs and be returned to her and not forfeited to the government.

      Ibo manu—-one Nigeria 3 regional faces—–Former First Lady, Mrs. Patience Jonathan, has thrown more light into how her estimated $20 million in Skye Bank was left in the accounts of four companies operated by the erstwhile Special Adviser on Domestic Matters to the President, Mr. Waripamo Dudafa. *Patience Jonathan Mrs. Jonathan, in a statement of claim in the suit filed by her to recover the money, said all five accounts were opened with her funds but discovered to her chagrin sometime in 2014 that four of the accounts were opened in the name of Dudafa’s companies, namely Pluto Property and Investment Company Limited, Seagate Property Development and Investment Company Limited and Trans Ocean Property and Investment Company Limited. Mrs. Jonathan, who introduced herself as a housewife, trader and wife of a politician, in the statement of claim, said when she discovered that four of the accounts were not in her name, she drew the attention of the bank to it, following which Dudafa brought the bank manager, Dipo Oshodi, to her sometime in April 2014. According to her, the bank manager promised to effect the change in account name, but that she subsequently discovered that it was not effected. She said despite repeated requests that the change in account name be done, the bank did not heed her advice.

    Swiss firms have been criticised in a report for their links to the African trade in diesel with toxin levels that are illegal in Europe.

    Campaign group Public Eye says retailers are exploiting weak regulatory standards.

    Vitol, Trafigura, Addax & Oryx and Lynx Energy have been named because they are shareholders of the fuel retailers.

    Trafigura and Vitol say the report is misconceived and retailers work within legal limits enforced in the countries.

    Three of the distribution companies mentioned in the report have responded by saying that they meet the regulatory requirements of the market and have no vested interest in keeping sulphur levels higher than they need to be.

    Although this is within the limits set by national governments, the sulphur contained in the fumes from the diesel fuel could increase respiratory illnesses like asthma and bronchitis in affected countries, health

      Editor Premium Times,

      Patience Jonathan is therefore guilty!

      Since the companies are dummies; and are all owned by Patience Jonathan –
      who was sole signatory to bank accounts of the three [3] companies – it follows
      that Patience Jonathan is guilty and could be sentenced to prison in absentia,
      pending when she’ll return from overseas trip and could be arrested inside
      Nigeria. There can be no question on this. I now understand why Goodluck
      Jonathan was running around Minna on Sallah day to see General Ibrahim
      Babaginda. But it is now too late to get Babaginda to do anything because
      criminal sentencing and forfeiture must always follow this guilty-plea.

    The United States Justice Department has revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife, Aisha Buhari was used as conduit in fraudulent wire transfers, from her Nigerian account in favour of Congressman Jefferson, via the ANJ Group LLC.

    The US District Court Memo, states that Congressman William J. Jefferson, between August 2000 and August 2005, sought hundreds of millions of dollars on behalf of himself and family members.

      $15million forfeited in Patience Jonathan’s account: The Matters Arising

      Where did Patience Jonathan get the $15million she deposited in Skye bank via the three companies?

      Since her salary in her life does not amount to $2m, was Patience Jonathan a front for somebody?

      Is justice fully done by just seizing the $15million as forfeit, without punishment for those who stole it?

        2.8 BILLION DOLLARS 1978 OIL MONEY WAS TRACED TO GENERAL BUHARI’S MIDLAND NOW HSBC OFFSHORE BANK ACCOUNT THAT WAS WHY HE STRUCK ON DECEMBER 31 1983.

        Before he became HOS in 1983 he was the General Officer Commanding the 3rd Armoured Division Jos. With armour under your command you could launch coups. Abuja where President Shagari was celebrating the New Year is flat terrain suitable for armoured warfare. But it never came to that.

        Shagari’s regime (1979-1983), incurred Buhari’s wrath when it decided to investigate the US$2.8 billion that disappeared from the Midland Bank, London account of the Nigerian National Petroleum Cooperation, (NNPC), during General Obasanjo’s era as military head of state that preceded Shagari’s. Dr. Olusola Saraki, Turaki of Ilorin, was the majority party leader of the Senate at the time and he headed the Senate Committee set up to trace the stolen money after some three years of clamour for such an investigation by members of the civil society. The money was traced to the Midland Bank London branch fixed account of Buhari, Obasanjo’s appointee as military head of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company. The Committee’s report was presented to the Senate during the tail end of Shagari’s regime in 1983, so the House decided to deal with the matter soon after the 1983 general elections.

    that’s all one needs to know. the fix is in, as is the norm, if you are a former president/spouse, and you commit TREASON against the FRN by looting OUR treasury, it doesn’t count(meaning the accused gets a pass), since our wise elders have decided amongst themselves, “which Nigerians are subject to the Rule of Law”.

    The United States Justice Department has revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife, Aisha Buhari was used as conduit in fraudulent wire transfers, from her Nigerian account in favour of Congressman Jefferson, via the ANJ Group LLC.

    The US District Court Memo, states that Congressman William J. Jefferson, between August 2000 and August 2005, sought hundreds of millions of dollars on behalf of himself and family members.

    Yet Aisha Bingo Buhari remains elusive to the search for Equity and Justice——————by the Global Peace Family———Africans most especially Nigerians can now understand why———————–most if not all African Leaders from the Emerging democracies of the World, often refuse to move out of office–at the end of all these Western nations sponsored election- defeats like we had in 2015—–They rather stay glued to their presidential palaces till death do we part——because of the witch-hunt by the trans-national leaders often installed by western nations to destroy the economies of their countries————Just————as we see Buhari and the Yoruba thieves are presently doing with their scorch earth policies against the Ijaw Nation-in the Niger delta and the country at large——————Aisha Buhari ati Yawo Abacha nko————when will their trial begin ?-animals

    Premium Times Editor,

    Patience Jonathan acted heinously and irresponsibly by taking such amount of money
    in a country where 70% of the populace have no toilets or drinking water. To be frank,
    she acted sinfully before God and Man and would stand stand grossly condemnable,
    even if she only lent herself out as conduit to help disguise the true owner of the
    money who, as likely as not, would be a topmost public official who would have
    no alibi against immediate conviction and sentencing were this money found
    on him (or her?). Some thefts involve such moral turpitude they will rise to
    a level of crime against humanity. Patience Jonathan’s deed ranks there.

  • Ijaw Nation on trial

    Family of Mr Azibaola Robert a cousin to former President Goodluck

    Jonathan has accused the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC of

    poisoning ýtheir breadwinner.

    The family levelled the accusation in a press conference in Lagos.

    Robert, Managing Director of One Plus Holdings Limited was arrested by the

    EFCC on 23 of March over a $40 million pipelines security contract

    awarded to his firm by the Office of the National Security Adviser ONSA.

    At the press conference Sunday in Lagos, Azibaola’s younger brother, Dr

    Faith Robert, said there was sufficient reason to believe that EFCC had

    poisoned his brother because he failed to “manufacture evidence against

    former President Goodluck Jonathan.”

    He described the ýcontinued detention of his elder brother by the anti-

    graft agency after an Abuja High Court had granted him bail on April 7, as

    a pointer to the sinister plans by EFCC to harm him.
    According to Faith, in EFCC custody, Azibaola has been “repeatedly

    bullied, harassed, threatened and psychologically traumatised to either

    implicate Goodluck Jonathan or be ready to face the Dasuki treatment.”

    He added, “Some have even taunted him to get his cousin former president

    Jonathan to beg president Mujammadu Buhari to relase my brother, if

    Jonathan indeed has any clout.” As if this is not enough–now the wife of Jonathan is being tried in the Buhari people court by the Apes in APC-

      But within the limits of his own under par schooling,
      President Muhamadu Buhari would probably be saluting himself as a
      genius, especially with fawning praises from lies-telling creatures like Lai
      Muhammed that President Buhari appointed to shoot himself in the foot by
      casting his government as something not to be believed. Nigerians however feel
      strongly that President Buhari is actually corrupting public morality by
      encouraging corruption.

      All cases of corruption occurring on the part of his enablers and
      sponsors are simply overlooked, despite that those cases involve over two trillion
      Naira of fraud, including the 1.2 trillion Naira fraudulence committed in
      Central Bank by Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, backed by finalized audit report on
      President Buhari’s table since 29th May, 2015, without ever
      receiving presidential signature for prosecution and recovery.

      The portrait of a corrupt president is emerging from such an instance of
      nepotist corruption, which has become a new normal under President Buhari,
      with a pending query over his claimed 1961 Wasc qualification which he’s never
      been able to show or prove, not even by asking the examination body – WAEC – to
      issue him a back copy, if ever President Muhamadu Buhari ever sat for the Wasc
      exam.

      It is not too late
      for President Buhari to save his fumbling government from disgrace. Buhari
      belatedly hosted a retreat yesterday to urge his Ministers to start thinking
      out of the box – after three months since the same Ministers’ thoughtlessness
      drove Nigeria into ongoing economic recession. President Buhari has run out of
      excuses for his serial failures and only just clutches at straws, despite his
      having had notice since 30th March when the first quarter negative result
      showed that Nigeria was sinking underwater from his scatter-brained policies.
      If Nigeria is not to fall apart under Buhari Nigerians must take matters into
      their own hand and not expect that President Buhari can still produce a less
      worse result than he’s so far done.

      The ex-President’s wife stated this in a statement on Thursday by her media aide, Chima Osuji.

      She alleged that the EFCC presented four unknown persons, who were not authorised by the companies’ boards to plead guilty on behalf of the companies.

      She said it was a ploy by the EFCC to ensure that her hard-earn money was confiscated.

      The ex-President’s wife argued that the EFCC failed to comply with Section 477 (2) of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, 2015, by not presenting to the court on Thursday any letter to show that the four persons were authorised by the companies to represent them.

      “This is a clear evidence of the desperation of the prosecution to pull down the former First Lady and confiscate her hard-earned money.

      “It is an irony that it was the former First Lady who went to court for the repatriation of her confiscated money when she realised that the EFCC and its co-travellers were playing politics with this issue after she had come out publicly to say that the said money belongs to her and that she has all evidence to prove the sources of her money. Up till this very moment, the EFCC has refused to interrogate or invite her for questioning.

    @ Col Mariam————-The same old Hail Hitlers here again with their loose regional thoughts against the Ijaw Nation——–Theirs is to aid the Fulanis and Yorubas thieves————-to economically disfranchise the Ijaw Nation–Go and count the number of Ijaws in the gulag of Buhari–or standing trial—-and compare same to the Fulanis– Ibos–ati Yorubas—? From Mrs Madueke—-Akpos–Orubebe Chief Roberts—-Mrs Jonathan—-Dudafa—–the list is endless-Sadly–Imagine an Ibo man talking about stealing in a place where some sane Nigerian are airing their views——–How much of the money Zik stole from ACB did he return-to the Ijaws who were co–owners of the Bank—-?——Are the Yorubas not with their WEMA BANK-Besides how much of the money Mrs Abacha stole did she return to the Central Bank-?———-What about Sanusi of Kano-ati bingo Buhari–and his wife Aisha-whatever money that the former First lady got came from gifts to her————she did not steal anybody’s money–like Zik who stole from the vaults of the ACB banks-Those who stole the oil wells located in the South south since 1956 should return same-to us in the creeks———-Separation is the answer not this witch-hunt by the those from the old regions of Nigerian now in charge of our oil wells—animals

    If this money was actually stollen, please from where was it stollen? Is it a crime to have money in your account?

      Really dude? How silly is that from any man. $26 Million Dollars in her account. What’s the source of that income over the course of 6 years. I guess you forgot first ladies don’t get paid salaries. It’s baffles me to know people have this kind of mindset and you wonder why it’s hard for Nigeria to progress.

        Really. She was a pauper before she became first lady? She does not have a history? She just fell down the sky and became first lady? Until i hear or see a very reasonable reason why the money should be taken from her, i can never support that it be taken from her. Supporting the EFCC to take the money from her just because it was found in her account is lame. They should be able to tell us from what part of our collective patrimony that the money came from for support this. These so called EFCC are just lazy and that’s why all they do is try people on the pages of the newspapers and hope to garner lots of hatred from the masses before eventually going to court just to finish it before a judge that is already biased from reading the newspapers! They should up their game and be more investigative. Otherwise, this is just a political witch hunting. Ok! Lets check Tinubu’s accounts and correlate it his days as a governor and see if he is really clean. No! Tinubu is too far! Lets check Amechi’s account and make it public so that he too can explain how he got from being a street guy to a multi billionaire just after some years as a governor. In conclusion all am saying is: If this government wants to fight corruption, let them make it a total affair and not this partisan witch hunt that is going on!
