Anti-corruption activist, Charles Ogboli, was a guest on Channels TV yesterday where he alleged that two of the accounts which had $15 million linked to Patience Jonathan was owned by her mother. Speaking on how the accounts linked to the former first lady was opened, Charles said
“The truth of the matter is that sometime in 2013, she wanted to travel out of the country for medical attention, she called on the domestic aide to former president Jonathan,
Dr Dudafa, and told him she wants to travel out for medical attention and she intended to travel with physical cash. Dudafa now said he wants to get clarification from EFCC if it is possible to travel out with cash. He contacted top EFCC officials and they advised that he open an account. She then asked Dudafa to cantact a bank which she can open an account. Dudafa then came in with Skye bank officials, two of them, who brought a form. She filled the form with her personal data. There was no company involved. After filling the form and signed, they took the form away and after some few days they came back with cards. They didn’t come back with any cheque book. They came back with cards. She started operating the accounts” When asked what names were on the cards, Ogboli said “Her personal names was on one of the cards and the other two were the mothers name, business names. The mother used two of the accounts for business. The names on the accounts were supposed to be the name of the mother and herself but unfortunately when the ugly development started and she noticed that three of the cards were in a companies names; Pluto Property and Investment Company Limited; Seagate Property Development and Investment Company Limited; Trans Ocean Property and Investment Company Limited”.
