“Who is behind the victimization of our daughter? Niger Delta sons, daughters, arise against injustice”, says one of the banners used by the Ijaw Youths Congress (IYC) to protest against the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The IYC on Friday took to the streets of Port Harcourt, Rivers, to condemn the anti-graft agency’s investigation into the alleged diversion of funds through four companies’ accounts in Skye Bank.
The accounts containing about $15 million, were linked to Patience Jonathan, former first lady.
Her account with Skye Bank was also frozen during the course of the investigation and Jonathan has since claimed that she needs the money for her medical treatment abroad.
She has also given the EFCC a 14-day ultimatum to defreeze her accounts and tender a public apology.
