Jennifer Turnah, the wife of George Turnah, who is the godson to former President Goodluck Jonathan, has been declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

According to Punch newspaper, the EFCC said in a statement said the 30-year-old suspect, who hails from Kolokuma/Opokuma LGA of Bayelsa State, allegedly helped her husband to launder over N1bn through some shell accounts.


The commission said Jennifer was a signatory to many of the accounts and had continued to ignore invitations from the EFCC.

The statement partly, “The public is hereby notified that Jennifer Timinipre Turnah whose photograph appears below, is wanted by the EFCC in a case of criminal conspiracy, money laundering and stealing to the tune of N1bn.

“The suspect, who is the wife of George Turnah, a former special assistant to an ex-Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, is a signatory to some of the companies her husband allegedly used to launder monies meant for youth development.

“Bank accounts of the shell companies – Celtic Pride Global Services Limited, West Oak Multi Concepts Limited, Eliben Educational Centre Limited, Cinco Ranch Hotels and Apartments Nigeria Limited and Dubai Stores and Supermarket Nigeria Limited – were used to launder the stolen funds.

“The suspect has refused to honour repeated invitations from the commission and is currently on the run.” The commission asked “Nigerians to report to the nearest EFCC office if she is sighted.”
