The wife of former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, Margaret Emefiele, and three other people have been declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for their alleged involvement in money laundering activities.

The Federal Government of Nigeria is searching for Margaret Emefiele, Eric Odoh, Anita Omoile, and her husband Jonathan Omoile for their roles in a plot to convert substantial amounts of money.

The agency accuses them of violating Sections 411, 287, and 314 of the Lagos State Criminal Law in addition to stealing and collecting money under false pretences.

The four suspects’ mugshots were included in a statement issued by the EFCC late on Friday night, which also asked anyone with knowledge about their whereabouts to get in touch with the closest EFCC Command or police station.

“The EFCC is hunting for Eric Odoh, Margaret Emefiele, Anita Omoile, and Jonathan Omoile for charges of financial and economic crimes.

“Do you know where they are located? Please get in touch with the closest police station or EFCC command”. It says in the statement.

Godwin Emefiele is now being prosecuted for alleged fraud of ₦1.8 billion and $6.2 million. This proclamation of wanted comes in the middle of ongoing legal processes against him.

Emefiele is accused in the most recent revised allegations of posing as the Secretary to the Government of the Federation in order to obtain $6.2 million illegally. The case was made before Justice Hamza Muazu of the Federal Capital Territory High Court in Abuja.

According to the EFCC, Emefiele and Odoh Ocheme conspired to deceitfully collect the monies from the CBN and then claimed that the SGF had requested them.

Emefiele is also charged with fabricating paperwork and giving his brother-in-law and wife bribes in exchange for contracts to renovate the CBN Governor’s mansion in Lagos.
