The former first lady is asking the court to sentence the three MDs to court for allegedly refusing a previous court order to unfreeze her bank accounts containing aggregate sums of $5.8 million and N3.5 billion.
Vanguard reports that those listed in the lawsuit are the group managing director/chief executive officer of First Bank Nigeria Plc, Adesola Adeduntan, the chief executive officer of Skye Bank Plc, Tokunbo Abiru and the managing director/chief executive officer of Diamond Bank Plc, Uzoma Dozie.
a court had reviously on December 5, 2017, lifted a Post-No-Bill order the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) placed on 16 separate accounts that were linked to her.
However, in a counter suit, the three banks filed preliminary objections to challenge the jurisdiction of the court to hear the contempt proceeding Jonathan and her firms initiated against their CEOs.
The banks applied for an order suspending any further proceedings in the suit, as well as an order striking out or dismissing the committal proceedings for want of jurisdictional competence.
