The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has begun moves to seize properties belonging to former First Lady, Patience Jonathan.
The commission started the probe in a bid to gather evidence against her, following the freezing of $20m traced to her.
EFCC has also set up a team of detectives saddled with the responsibility of identifying houses and property owned by Patience.
The operatives had been instructed from the office of the commission’s chairman to mark such houses.
The operatives are focusing attention on properties in Lagos, Abuja, Yenagoa and Port Harcourt.
“It would not be correct to conclude that the commission has halted the investigation into the activities of the former First Lady,” a source told Punch.
“The investigation is progressing and it is being handled by the office of the chairman of the commission.
“A team of operatives has been assembled to identify all her properties in the country with a focus on Abuja, Port Harcourt and Yenagoa.
