telephones of our client and her relations through its many operatives

messages,” the former president’s wife alleged.
Mrs. Jonathan also accused the officials of the FIRS of vandalizing
her properties in her hotel located in Bayelsa state two months ago.

personal properties belonging to our client without any lawful court
