Nigeria’s former First Lady Patience Jonathan is suing the country’s anti-corruption agency for $200m (£160m) for freezing some of her bank accounts. The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) claimed the decision was made as part of an investigation on alleged money-laundering charges pressed against her.
Jonathan, wife of former president Goodluck Jonathan, has denied the allegations and called on the EFCC to unfreeze her accounts and pay compensation for infringing her rights.
The former first lady filed court papers against the EFCC at the Federal High Court in Lagos on 27 October.
