Following the raid by the Nigerian Police on Patience Jonathan’s home, the former First Lady has come out to talk about what happened.
Responding to reports that police had raided one of her houses in Abuja, former First Lady Patience Jonathan stated on Thursday that police found nothing incriminating, Punch Newspaper reports.
Police confiscated three checkbooks from the premises, according to Mrs. Jonathan and her attorney, Charles Ogboli. She added that the police searched her home, not the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), as had been reported by some media outlets.
Mrs. Jonathan also clarified that she is the owner of the house, but it is occupied by her brothers and sisters.
The embattled former first lady condemned the police for raiding her home while the occupants were absent, calling it an “embarrassment.”
“EFCC came last year and conducted a search in the absence of the occupant of the house. The NDLEA [National Drug Law Enforcement Agency] also searched the same building. This also happened last year between November or thereabouts. It is an embarrassment,” she said.
