Financial Conspiracy Probe: EFCC Declares Emefiele’s Wife Wanted

Financial Conspiracy Probe: EFCC Declares Emefiele’s Wife Wanted

by Victor Ndubuisi

The wife of the former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, Margaret Emefiele, has been formally proclaimed sought by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in relation to a purported financial scheme.

The inquiry is a component of a larger investigation into the misappropriation of large quantities of money that belong to the Nigerian Federal Government.

The CBN officer Eric Odoh, businesswoman Anita Omoile, and Bureau De Change operator Jonathan Omoile are included with Margaret Emefiele as sought suspects. Financial and economic crimes are the charges that all four of them are facing.

Among individuals whose mugshots the EFCC has made public on its official website and social media outlets is Margaret Emefiele, who allegedly fled after her husband’s detention and subsequent court proceedings. Please share any information you may have concerning their location with the public.


The legal problems surrounding Godwin Emefiele have become much more complicated as a result of this development. His legal issues started on June 9, 2023, when Bola Tinubu suspended him. This resulted in his detention by the Department of State Services (DSS) in Lagos. He was then charged with money laundering and fraud, and the EFCC took over the case.

Jim Obazee was designated by Tinubu as the Special Investigator to examine the apex bank’s operations under Emefiele’s leadership.

According to the allegations, Emefiele opened 593 overseas bank accounts without the required authorization and kept sizable sums of money in fixed deposits in China, the United States, and the United Kingdom.

Emefiele fiercely refuted the charges, calling them “satanic.” He said the private investigator was following a biassed agenda, pointing out that he had received all required approvals during his employment.

The EFCC’s decision to proclaim his wife sought heightens the judicial drama and casts doubt on the scope of the purported financial scheme.
