Mrs. Margaret Emefiele was declared wanted alongside a CBN official, Eric Odoh, a businesswoman, Anita Omoile, and a Bureau De Change operator, Jonathan Omoile.
According to a statement issued by the commission, they were declared wanted for allegedly conspiring with Emefiele to convert huge sums of money belonging to the Federal Government of Nigeria.
The wife of the former CBN boss reportedly went into hiding after her husband was arrested and charged to court.
The anti-graft agency also released the suspects’ mugshot on its website and social media handles.
“Emefiele, Odoh, Mr and Mrs Omoile, wanted by the EFCC. The quartet of Eric Odoh, Margaret Emefiele, Anita Omoile and Jonathan Omoile, are wanted by the EFCC for offences bothering on economic and financial crimes.
“Any information on their whereabout? Please contact the nearest EFCC Command or the nearest police Station,” read the statement attached to the mugshot.
It would be recalled that President Bola Tinubu shortly after coming into office sacked the former CBN governor, Godwin Emefiele.
The President said the nation’s financial system under the suspended Emefiele was rotten, claiming many Nigerians abroad were unable to send money to their relatives because of the multiple exchange rates and other shenanigans.
“Then the financial system was rotten. Few people making bags of our money and then you yourself, you stopped sending money home to our poor parents. Several windows… but that is gone now, is gone.
