Mrs. Jonathan

Militants in the Niger Delta, on Wednesday, warned the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission that it would trigger off a major onslaught against some of Nigeria’s legacy assets if it went ahead to carry out its threat to arrest former First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan.

For starters, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) Towers in Abuja, would be razed to the ground, the Niger Delta Peoples Professional Volunteer Force (NDPPVF), warned in a statement.

This is coming against the backdrop of a statement credited to the EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, that the wife of the former President, Goodluck Jonathan, would be arrested and prosecuted, if she was found linked to the case of money laundering, which it is currently investigating.

The anti-graft agency, had filed charges of money laundering against former Special Assistant to the former President on Domestic Affairs, Waripamowei Dudafa, Amajuoyi Brigs and Damola Bolodeoku, an official of the Skye Bank, over a $15million lodged at the bank.

Mrs. Jonathan, had since, claimed ownership of the money and not only accused the EFCC of trying to steal it, but gave them a 14-day ultimatum to release the money, which she claimed, was for her medical bills abroad.

Equally, asking the EFCC to release the money immediately the militant group, in a statement by its spokesman, Parkinson George-Amabo, warned Magu of dire consequences if he decided to go ahead with his investigation of the former first lady.

The group said: “As a matter of fact, the EFCC has launched a criminal investigation of Mrs. Jonathan and in the process, frozen her bank accounts domiciled with a Nigerian commercial bank without affording her opportunity to state her own side of the matter.

“Nobody is above the law. The NDPPVF does not support or condone corruption. If Mrs. Jonathan was found to be corrupt, we shall not hesitate to call for her prosecution.

“We, however, have a grouse with the modus operandi of Mrs. Jonathan’s investigation, given her status as the wife of a former deputy governor, former governor, former vice-president, former acting president and finally, former president. She is perhaps, the only Nigerian woman – dead or alive – with such an impressive and fortuitous pedigree; which accounts for why the EFCC needs to thread with caution.

“Recently, there have been calls on the Attorney-General of the Federation as well as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to arrest and prosecute the former First Lady for alleged money laundering.

“We shall simultaneously bomb the 4 wings of the NNPC Towers the day it is announced that MRS. PATIENCE GOODLUCK JONATHAN has been arrested by the EFCC.”
