EFCC Declares Emefiele’s Wife Wanted

The Economic Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) has declared wife of former Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor, Godwin Emefiele, wanted.

She was declared wanted alongside a CBN official, Eric Odoh, a businesswoman, Anita Omoile, and a Bureau De Change operator, Jonathan Omoile.

According to a statement issued by the commission, they were declared wanted for allegedly conspiring with Emefiele to convert huge sums of money belonging to the Federal Government of Nigeria.

The wife of the former CBN boss reportedly went into hiding after her husband was arrested and charged to court.

The anti-graft agency also released the suspects’ mugshot on its website and social media handles.

Emefiele’s travails began after President Bola Tinubu suspended him on June 9, 2023, leading to his arrest by the Department of State Services (DSS) in Lagos.

He was later transferred to Abuja and moved to custody of the EFCC, which arraigned him on money laundering and fraud charges.
