Alleged Harassment: Court Fixes Nov. 16 For Hearing Of Patience Jonathan’s Suit Against EFCC

Justice John Tsoho of the Federal High Court Abuja has fixed Nov. 16 to hear the N2billion Fundamental Rights suit brought against the EFCC by Mrs Patience Jonathan.

The wife of the former president Goodluck Jonathan had filed the suit to challenge her alleged harassment by the anti-graft commission.

At the resumed hearing, Mr Ifedayo Adedipe (SAN) announced to the court of his readiness to move his client’s application.

Justice Tsoho, however, refused to entertain the suit on the grounds that the respondent was not represented in court.

The suit was brought pursuant to Order 2 Rule 1 of the Fundamental Rights Enforcement Procedure Rules 2009 and Sections 34(1), 36(1), 37, 42 and 44 of 1999 Constitution as amended.

The applicant is praying for an order for general damages and compensation in the sum of N2billion.
