George Turnah, a godson of former President Goodluck Jonathan, was on Monday in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, grilled by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Mr. Turnah was accompanied to the mid-morning event at the commission’s zonal office in the city by several lawyers, including a professor of law and two Senior Advocates of Nigeria. He was reportedly questioned on issues relating to fraud and the misappropriation of funds belonging to the Niger Delta Development Commission.
SaharaReporters learnt that several bank accounts relating to Mr. Turnah, including individual and corporate accounts as well as his children's Education Insurance Account, have been frozen by the anti-graft commission.
Mr. Turnah has however maintained he has never been a public officer and could not have had access to public funds and as such could not have misappropriated or laundered such funds.
