THE Economic Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has arrested Alabh George Turnah, a former Special Adviser to the Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC.
The News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, reports that he was arrested in Port Harcourt, Rivers State in connection with alleged possession of funds running into N2 billion.
The money, according to the EFCC, was suspected to have been stolen from the NDDC while serving there as an Adviser to Mr. Dan Abia, then the NDDC managing director.
Turnah, widely believed to be a godson of former President Goodluck Jonathan, served in the NDDC between 2012 and 2015.
A search conducted in his houses in Port Harcourt and Yenogoa, yielded useful documents.
Turnah has made useful statements to the EFCC and will be arraigned as soon as investigations are concluded.
