The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has confiscated a mansion and some other properties allegedly belonging to George Turnah, an ally to former President Goodluck Jonathan.

Turnah is currently standing trial for an alleged N3bn fraud.


The anti-graft agency also froze about seven bank accounts through which the suspect, Turnah, allegedly received billions of naira.

EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, in a statement said, “The EFCC has taken over some bank accounts and properties traced to a former Special Adviser to Dan Abia, erstwhile managing director of Niger Delta Development Commission, Mr. George Turnah.

“The confiscation was done on Thursday sequel to an interim forfeiture order granted the commission by a Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.


“One of the properties covered by the forfeiture order and which had been attached by the EFCC ‘is a massive complete building known as Kolo Villa’ in Kolo Town, Ogbia Local Government Area of Bayelsa State. Other properties will soon be attached.”

Justice Ibrahim Watilat had granted the interim forfeiture order based on an application filed before the court by the EFCC’s counsel, Adebola Olatunji.

Turnah, together with seven companies, were arraigned on 12 charges bordering on obtaining by false pretences, money laundering and abuse of office to the tune of N3, 094, 268, 235.69.



The seven companies arraigned with Turnah are: El Godmas Global Services Limited; Turnoil and Gas Nigeria Limited; Kolo Creek Petroleum Development Limited; Celtic Pride Consult and Events; Yenagoa Mall, Adaka Boro Marine Services Limited; and Sugarland Integrated farms Nigeria Limited.
