EFCC Arrests Patience Jonathan’s Sister At Abuja Airport
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on Monday arrested Esther Oba, sister to ex-First Lady Patience Jonathan, over an alleged laundering of over N359,397,458.26 through two firms linked with the former First Lady.
Oba was arrested at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport shortly after arriving from Dubai in company of her husband, three children and a house help.
EFCC sources said the suspect is central to the ongoing probe of the former First Lady.
One of the sources said: “We have been looking for her but she has been faceless. We watch-listed her for arrest by any security agency.
“Fortunately at about noon on Monday, the Nigerian Immigration Service(NIS) contacted us that she was arrested while returning from Dubai with her husband and three children. She was arrested at Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport.
“Her name featured in the operation of one of the accounts of ex-First Lady Patience Jonathan. The account is in the name of AM-PM Global Networks Limited which is domiciled in Stanbic IBTC. It is one of the accounts we have frozen. She is the sole signatory to the account of this firm suspected to have been used for money laundering.”
