The embattled godson of former President Goodluck Jonathan Mr. George Turner is in for a fresh trouble, as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has declared his wife Jennifer wanted over a case of criminal conspiracy, money laundering and stealing to the tune of over N1billion.
A statement signed by the Head of Media and Publicity of the anti-graft agency, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren noted that Mrs. Turner is a signatory to some of the companies her husband is allegedly used to launder monies meant for youth development while he was serving as the Special Adviser to the former Managing Director of the Niger Delta Developing Commission (NDDC) Chief Dan Abia.
The statement further hinted that the bank accounts of the said companies used include Celtic Pride Global Services Limited, West Oak Multi Concept Limited, Eliben Educational Centre Limited, Cinco Ranch Hotel’s and Apartments Nigeria Limited and Dubai Stores and Supermarket Nigeria Limited to launder funds.
According to the EFCC, Mrs. Jennifer Turner has refused to honour repeated invitations from the commission and she is currently at large.
It would be recalled that Mr. Turner is standing trial for criminal conspiracy and money laundering in a Federal High Court in Port Harcourt, Rivers state.
The anti-graft agency has secured a forfeiture order from the court in which some of his properties were confiscated. He is currently on bail.
