The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have reportedly discovered another $175m in the account of Pluto Property and Investment Limited, one of the firms linked to Patience Jonathan, The Nation reports.
The company was one of the four convicted on November 2 for laundering the $15.5million, which Mrs. Jonathan insists belongs to her.
According to The Nation’s report, the anti-graft agency has declared Toru Wonyeng Ibuomo and Friday Davies who made the deposits within 14 months wanted
The deposits discovered were $46,500,000, $31,000,000, $49,250,000 and $49,000,000. The cash has however, reportedly vanished from the account.
A source privy with information to the investigation said; “The EFCC is probing how the deposits hit the company’s account barely two years after it was registered and without executing any major contract. We are suspecting that this is another slush account where government funds were diverted to,”.
“All the deposits were in cash, a development which showed that it was a pure case of money laundering.
“On the 21st of February, the account was reported to have recorded a cash deposit of $46,500,000 by the General Manager of Pluto Property and Investment Company Limited , Toru Wonyeng Ibuomo.
“Three days after(24th of February, 2014), another cash deposit of $31,000,000 was made by the same General Manager.
“Friday Davies made a cash deposit of $49,250,000 into the same account. The last tranche of $49,000,000 was deposited by Davies on Apri 1, 2015.”
The EFCC had earlier frozen four accounts with $15 million belonging to Mrs. Jonathan, who claimed it was for her medical treatment.
