The Presidency has said former First Lady, Patience Jonathan is being investigated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) because she has some “stolen items” in her possession.
Special Assistant to the President on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, said this on her twitter handle @Laurestar, yesterday.
Mrs Jonathan had petitioned President Muhammadu Buhari, to intervene in what she referred to as ‘witch-hunt.’
The former first lady had accused EFCC acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, of bias and intimidation as well as spreading falsehood and propaganda against her, and asked that he be called to order.
Reacting to the claims of the former first lady, Onochie said EFCC is only attracted to “those who have stolen items.”
In a series of tweets, Onochie wrote: “Madam, under your (administration), oops, your husband’s (administration), perversion of the course of justice was standard. Under @MBuhari’s (administration), it’s forbidden.
“Again, there must be some things about you that attract @officialEFCC. EFCC is only attracted to those who have stolen items. Do you have?”
