The EFCC has announced the wanted status of Emefiele’s wife and three others

Date:

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has issued a declaration of wanted status for Margaret Emefiele, wife of former Central Bank of Nigeria Governor Godwin Emefiele, along with three others – Eric Odoh, Anita Omoile, and her husband Jonathan Omoile.

They are accused of conspiring with the ex-CBN Governor in alleged money laundering activities, converting substantial amounts of government funds and committing offenses under Sections 411, 287, and 314 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State.

The EFCC disclosed details of the money laundering accusations through a late-night mugshot release.

 

Emefiele, Odoh, and the Omoile couple are sought for economic and financial crimes, urging anyone with information on their whereabouts to contact the EFCC or the nearest police station.

Additionally, an EFCC document revealed that the former CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele, faces prosecution for ₦1.8bn and $6.2m fraud.

 

The government has amended charges against him, accusing him of impersonating the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and illegally obtaining $6.2m.

The amended charge alleges that Emefiele, in collaboration with Odoh Ocheme, sought the funds from the CBN, falsely claiming it was at the SGF’s request.

Further accusations include forgery of a document and conferring corrupt advantages by awarding a renovation contract for the CBN Governor’s residence to his wife and brother-in-law.

These allegations are detailed in a total of 20 counts against Emefiele, with the trial ongoing.
