Companies plead guilty to laundering “Patience Jonathan’s $15m”

Four companies allegedly used to launder the sum of $15, 591, 700 by Waripamo Owei-Didafa, an Aide to GEJ, have, today, pleaded guilty to the offence before a Federal High Court Sitting in Lagos. They pleaded guilty to conspiring with Dudafa and the two others to launder the money.

The monies involved in the case is the same money which former First Lady, Patience Jonathan claimed belongs to her. Mrs Jonathan had last week filed a fundamental rights enforcement suit where she admitted ownership of the monies. She had asked that the court should compel the EFCC to immediately remove the ‘No Debit Order’ placed on the accounts.

The four companies are Pluto Property and Investment Company Limited; Seagate Property Development & Investment Co. Limited; Trans Ocean Property and Investment Company Limited and Development Company Limited.

They were all charged by the EFCC alongside Dudafa, a lawyer, Amajuoyi Azubuike Briggs & a banker, Demola Bolodeoku. While the companies pleaded guilty, Dudafa, the lawyer and banker, all pleaded not guilty to a 15 count amended charge. The offences, for which they were all charged, was said to have been committed between November 2013 and May 2015.
