Drama As EFCC Operatives Go After Emefiele's Wife (PHOTO)

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has issued a wanted declaration for the wife of former Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor, Godwin Emefiele, along with three other individuals.

Named in the declaration are a CBN official, Eric Odoh, a businesswoman, Anita Omoile, and a Bureau De Change operator, Jonathan Omoile. The EFCC alleges their involvement in a conspiracy with Emefiele to unlawfully convert significant sums of money belonging to the Federal Government of Nigeria.

Following the arrest and subsequent court proceedings against her husband, the wife of the former CBN boss reportedly went into hiding.

The EFCC has published the suspects’ mugshots on its website and social media platforms, urging anyone with information on their whereabouts to contact the nearest EFCC Command or police station.

This development marks a significant escalation in the investigation of corruption allegations against both past and present officials, as it is uncommon for spouses to be charged alongside those undergoing trial.

Emefiele’s troubles began after his suspension by President Bola Tinubu on June 9, 2023, which led to his arrest by the Department of State Services (DSS) in Lagos. He was subsequently transferred to Abuja and placed in the custody of the EFCC, where he faced charges related to money laundering and fraud.
