EFCC Raids Jonathan’s godson Turnah's Mansion

A team of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) ransacked the palatial home of George Turnah, popularly known as the godson to former President Goodluck Jonathan.

The operatives reportedly stormed Turnah's courtyard located at Kolo Creek, Ogbia, Bayelsa State with scores of fully-armed mobile policemen and soldiers.

They were said to have arrived the courtyard at about 5pm on Friday and painstakingly searched various buildings and rooms in the premises till about 10pm.

The team were said to have carted away cheque books and financial documents.

The EFCC is said to be investigating alleged multiple cases of corrupt enrichment against Turnah and his involvement in disappearance of money allocated to NDDC.

It was learnt 33yrs old Turnah fled his multi-billion naira Kolo Creek Villa built with a gold-plated fence and gate along the Ogbia town road few minutes before the arrival of EFCC.

His whereabouts were unknown with all his telephone numbers switched off.

The young man, Turnah, who graduated from the Law Faculty of Niger Delta University in 2009, warmed himself into the heart of Jonathan when he founded the Jonathan Youth Vanguard popularly called Joy 2011, a platform he used to mobilise support for Jonathan.

Jonathan conferred on him Member of the Order of the Niger (MON) award and was appointed a Special Assistant on Youth Matters to the Managing Director of (NDDC) in 2012.

Following the exit of Jonathan in 2015, Turnah is said to be living large.
