They were alleged to have laundered money for ex-First Lady, Mrs Patience Jonathan.

The four companies pleaded guilty to conspiring with Dudafa and the two others to launder a sum of $15,591,700 before a Federal High Court in Lagos on Thursday.

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 Economic and Financial Crimes Commission had since frozen the $15.6m found in the four companies’ accounts in Skye Bank.

But the wife of ex-President Jonathan, Patience, has sued the EFCC and Skye Bank, laying claim to the money. She said the money was for her medical treatment.
