EFCC grills prison officials over N300m Patience Jonathan’s contract

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has interrogated an assistant controller of Prisons and others over an alleged N300m contract given to some companies owned by Dame Patience Jonathan, wife of former President Goodluck Jonathan.

According to an EFCC detective, Mrs. Jonathan allegedly got some contracts to supply beddings and also fence some prisons’ facilities.

“We invited some prisons officials including an Assistant Controller, to explain why over N300m was paid into the account of a company linked to Mrs. Jonathan but they could not give us a logical answer”.

The source said the contracts were allegedly given to some companies that were not registered at the Corporate Affairs Commission.
