The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has declared Margaret Emefiele, the wife of former Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Governor, Godwin Emefiele and three others wanted for alleged involvement in money laundering activities.
According to the EFCC, Margaret Emefiele, Eric Odoh, Anita Omoile, and her husband Jonathan Omoile, are wanted for their roles in a scheme to convert large sums of money belonging to the Federal Government of Nigeria.
The agency accuses them of committing offences such as obtaining money by false pretences, theft and contravening Sections 411, 287, and 314 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State.
A statement released by the EFCC late Friday night included mugshot portraits of the four suspects, urging anyone with information about their whereabouts to contact the nearest EFCC Command or police station.
“Emefiele, Odoh, Mr and Mrs Omoile, wanted by the EFCC. The quartet of Eric Odoh, Margaret Emefiele, Anita Omoile and Jonathan Omoile, are wanted by the EFCC for offences bothering economic and financial crimes.
“Any information on their whereabouts? Please contact the nearest EFCC Command or the nearest police Station,” The statement reads.
The declaration of wanted comes amidst ongoing legal proceedings against Godwin Emefiele, who is facing charges of fraud amounting to ₦1.8 billion and $6.2 million.
The latest amended charge, presented before Justice Hamza Muazu of the Federal Capital Territory High Court in Abuja, accuses Emefiele of impersonating the Secretary to the Government of the Federation to illegally obtain $6.2 million.
The EFCC alleges that Emefiele, in collaboration with Odoh Ocheme, obtained the funds from the CBN under false pretences and claimed it was requested by the SGF.
Emefiele is further accused of forging documents and conferring corrupt advantages on his wife and brother-in-law by awarding them contracts for the renovation of the CBN Governor’s residence in Lagos.
