Former Nigerian first lady and the wife of former president, Goodluck Jonathan seems to be daring the antigraft agency EFCC, patience Jonathan had recently removed an efcc incription on her 2bn hotel which is still under investigation.
The hotel which is located near Setraco Construction Company, off Mabushi Kado Expressway had an inscriptions “EFCC Under Investigation”
However, reports indicated that the EFCC inscriptions had been covered with patches of grey paint. Three men who spoke to the press said they acted on the instruction of Mrs Jonathan. When asked if they had the right to enter the building, one of them said:
“Go and ask the EFCC if they had the right to put their sign all over the building in the first place. If you want more information, go and ask madam.” But lawyer to Mrs Jonathan, Ifedayo Adedipe ( SAN ) said he was not awere of the seizure of the property.
Meanwhile an EFCC official who spoke to news men said it was wrong of Mrs Jonathan to have removed the inscriptions. He said,
“Sometimes when we are investigating some politically exposed persons, they immediately begin to sell off their buildings in order to cover their tracks and run away with the cash so that is why we put EFCC signs on the buildings so that innocent people will not buy those buildings. “As it is, she has removed the inscriptions and can quickly sell it off.”
