The companies who accused of money laundering alongside with former special adviser on domestic affairs to former president Goodluck Jonathan Waripamo Dudafa, pleaded guilty to the charges, the Punch reports.
The companies are Pluto Property and Investment Company Limited; Seagate Property Development & Investment Co. Limited; Trans Ocean Property and Investment Company Limited and Development Company Limited and Avalon Global Property Development Company Limited.
The four companies accepted that they were conspiring with Dudafa and the two others to avert a sum of $15, 591,700 before a Federal High Court in Lagos on September 15, Thursday.
The money involved in the case is the same money which former First Lady, Patience Jonathan claimed belongs to her.
While the companies pleaded guilty, ex-presidential aide, the lawyer & banker all pleaded not guilty to a 15 count amended charge.
The ani-graft agency had since frozen the $15.6m found in the four companies’ accounts in Skye Bank.
However, the wife of Jonathan, Patience, has filed a suit against the EFCC and Skye Bank, laying claims to the money.
