The Federal Government of Nigeria is seeking 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 getting money by deception.

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.

“Mr. and Mrs. Omoile, Emefiele, Odoh, and the EFCC are wanted.” The EFCC is looking for Eric Odoh, Margaret Emefiele, Anita Omoile, and Jonathan Omoile for offenses related to 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.

The wanted poster was released in the midst of Godwin Emefiele’s current judicial processes. He is accused of defrauding the government out of ₦1.8 billion and $6.2 million.

Emefiele is accused in the most recent revised accusation 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 got the cash from the CBN using false pretenses, claiming 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.
