Why EFCC Raided Home Of Jonathan’s God-son
…N24b Traced To Him In Just One Bank!
The news of the raid by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on the residence of George Turner in Bayelsa State a few days ago is still reverberating across the state.
In the immediate past administration, Turner was a power-broker courted and revered by the high and mighty.
To many, he is the godson of the then president, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, a privileged status the young man leveraged upon to the maximum.
Expectedly, he became very rich in no time. As the Special Assistant to a former MD of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Turner allegedly cornered contracts worth several billions of naira for himself. Worse still, according to a source, about 90 percent of those contracts were half executed or not done at all.
In his days at the NDDC, Turner, 32, was known to be very powerful, with the MDs and the Executive Directors at the Commission sometimes defering to him due to his closeness to the former president, which he readily flaunts at the slightest opportunity.
Though Turner had escaped before the EFCC operatives stormed his multi-million palatial residence, jewelries and vital documents including about ten cheque books were found and taken away.
The surveillance on Turner, who is a 2009 law graduate of the Niger Delta University began some months ago, revealed another source to Treasure.
The source added, “Turner is rich despite having no visible means of livelihood. In just one new generation bank, a whopping sum of N24b was traced to him. With the cheque books that were found in his house, more revelations on his worth will unfold.”
