ANTI-GRAFT: IN-Law To VP Prof Osinbajo, Bola Shagaya Aided Patience Jonathan In Money Laundering Says Magu’s EFCC

By Uthman Muhammed and Danjuma Aliyu 

A prominent business woman from Kwara laundered billions of naira for Dame Patience Jonathan, the Economic and Financial Crime Commission, EFCC has said.

Bola Shagaya, whose son Seun Bakare is soon to marry the daughter of Yemi Osinbajo, the Vice President of Nigeria, is currently challenging the freezing of her account which has a balance of N1, 902,673,399.93.

The business woman claims that the money was the remaining of the N3,305,150,000, which was paid to her as “founder fees” on behalf of an organization, “Women for Change” being spearheaded by Dame Jonathan, the former first lady of Africa’s most populous country.

But, in a counter affidavit at the Federal High Court, Lagos, the EFCC said it froze the account in Unity Bank Plc as it was realised through Hajiya Shagaya’s “fraudulent activities in the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).”

Dame Jonathan is also being investigated for money laundering by the same anti-graft agency. A domestic aide to the former first family claims that she received advice from a former EFCC chairman on how to keep $15 million without breaking the law.
