Patience Jonathan, wife of the former president Goodluck Jonathan, has said members of Nigeria police force searched her family house but found nothing incriminating. The former first lady who spoke through her lawyer Charles Ogboli claimed that only cheque books, including one from Diamond Bank were found in the premises.
According to The Punch, she explained that contrary to widespread reports that it was an EFCC raid; it was actually the police that conducted the search. She further stated that the police said that they were forced to search her premises as a result of the security man’s attitude. Mrs Jonathan however decried the embarrassing situation where a building will be searched in the absence of the occupant. At the end, they asked the security man to sign that nothing incriminating was found. They took away three cheque books and a company iron seal. The company seal does not belong to the former first lady because she is not staying there. The company is not known to the first lady.
