Mrs. Patience Jonathan, wife of former President Goodluck Jonathan, has urged the House of Representatives to quickly intervene and save her life as she alleged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission plot to eliminate her.
In a letter written by her lawyers, Granville Abibo (SAN) & Co, Mrs. Jonathan said, “There have been assassination attempts, at least twice, between February and April, 2017, against our client ostensibly by the operatives of the EFCC along the Yenagoa-Mbaima Road, Bayelsa State, in furtherance of its unlawful actions against the former first family.”
Patience also accused the anti-graft agency of bugging her telephone lines, adding that agents of the commission had been sending threatening text messages to her.
The former President’s wife said, “The EFCC and its agents have repeatedly bugged the personal telephones of our client and her relations through its many operatives and has inundated her with numerous threatening calls and text messages.”
She said apart from the EFCC, other agencies of the government, like the Federal Inland Revenue Service had intimidated her.
Patience alleged that officials of the FIRS stormed her hotel in Bayelsa State two months ago and vandalised its properties.
Patience said the anti-graft agency had also seized properties belonging to her NGOs.
Meanwhile, the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, on Monday, said the allegation by Mrs. Jonathan that the agency was harassing her was misleading and spurious.
The NDLEA also stated that the former President’s wife’s allegation was an attempt to take issue with the agency as it had no case against her.topics from
