The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has intensified its pursuit of justice as it declares Margaret Emefiele, wife of former Central Bank of Nigeria Governor Godwin Emefiele, along with three others, wanted for alleged money laundering.
On Friday night, the EFCC announced that Mrs Emefiele, along with Eric Odoh, Anita Omoile, and Jonathan Omoile, are wanted for their purported involvement in a scheme to convert substantial sums of money belonging to the Federal Government of Nigeria. The agency accuses them of committing various crimes, including obtaining money through false pretences and stealing, as per Sections 411, 287, and 314 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State.
The EFCC’s declaration came alongside the release of mugshot portraits of the four suspects, shedding light on the details of the alleged money laundering offences they are accused of.
The document read, “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 on economic and financial crimes. Any information on their whereabout?
