GEJ’s ‘godson’ arrested for alleged N2 billion scam – EFCC
A former Special Adviser to Dan Abia, erstwhile Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, has been arrested for alleged corruption.
The agency said on Tuesday that its operatives arrested George Turnah, in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, in connection with alleged possession of funds running into N2 billion, suspected to be funds siphoned from the NDDC while serving there as an Adviser.
It said Mr. Turnah is widely believed to be a godson of former President Goodluck Jonathan, and that he served in the NDDC between 2012 and 2015.
“Preliminary investigations by the EFCC threw up deposits made in his personal and company bank accounts in excess of N2billion. A search conducted in his houses in Port Harcourt and Yenogoa, yielded useful documents.”
