against the EFCC was sus­tain­able.

The judge ac­cepted that her suit was not an abuse of court process, but ruled that none of her rights, in­clud­ing rights to fair hear­ing, own prop­erty, fam­ily life, dig­nity of hu­man per­son and free­dom from dis­crim­i­na­tion, was vi­o­lated by the ac­tions of the EFCC in its in­ves­ti­ga­tions of bank ac­counts and prop­er­ties linked to her and her rel­a­tives.

He held that hav­ing failed to prove her al­le­ga­tions against the com­mis­sion, the for­mer First Lady was not en­ti­tled to any of the six prayers, in­clud­ing the N2­bil­lion dam­ages sought in the suit

The judge noted that Mrs. Jonathan’s case had been weak­ened by the fact that the EFCC had said its in­ves­ti­ga­tions were on­go­ing. He con­se­quently struck out the case.
