Yesterday, group, Concerned Igbo Youths, blocked some major streets in Enugu, protesting against the ongoing probe of former First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan.
Led by their coordinator, Victor Ezenagu, they said the probe, which had led to the freezing of her bank account, was aimed at humiliating former President Goodluck Jonathan.
They marched to the Enugu office of the EFCC, where they submitted a petition titled “Unjust persecution and desperate plan to humiliate former Pres. Goodluck Jonathan.”
According to the youths;
”While we salute the commitment of the present administration towards fighting corruption in the country, we, however, express our disaffection WITH the manner the war is being prosecuted by the commission.
“It is quite condemnable that having sacrificed his ambition for the sake of Nigeria’s future, Jonathan’s family is being visited with such cruelty from the commission.”
They added that while they were not against the anti-graft war, “it should be done within the ambit of the law. It is not proper for the EFCC to punish the family of the former president and freeze their account over mere allegations.”
