EFCC Seizes Another House In Abuja Belonging To Jonathan’s Godson, George Turnah (See Photos) - 4 years ago
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has seized another property from George Turnah, a godson to former President Goodluck Jonathan. The property, which is located at Citec Estate, Gwarinpa, Abuja, is a duplex. Although the EFCC has yet to evaluate the value of the property, sources told our correspondent that such property would go for between N70m and N100m. As of Tuesday afternoon, the inscription, ‘EFCC, Keep off’ was seen across the fence and the gate of the building. The commission is still tracing Turnah’s remaining properties. Last week, the anti-graft agency seized a mansion and some other properties allegedly traced to Turnah who is standing trial for an alleged N3bn fraud. The commission also froze about seven bank accounts through which Turnah allegedly received billions of naira. Justice Ibrahim Watilat had granted the interim forfeiture order based on an application filed before the court by the EFCC’s counsel, Adebola Olatunji. Turnah, together with seven companies, were arraigned on 12 charges bordering on obtaining money by false pretences, money laundering and abuse of office to the tune of N3, 094, 268, 235.69.
