EFCC Arrest Jonathan’s Associate, King Turner Over N240m UBEC Contracts

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has detained King Turner, a close associate of former President Goodluck Jonathan, over N240 million Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) contracts.

King A.J. Turner, who is a Bayelsa first class monarch, his Maitama Home was raided in 2016 by operatives of the Directorate of State Security (DSS), carting away some documents, and unspecified amount of money.

Turner is a former chairman of the Board of UBEC when the alleged N20billion fraud was perpetrated.

Turner was arrested before the Easter holidays and detained for interrogation.

The suspect was flown to Lagos last night from Abuja for another round of grilling in respect of a separate case.

According to report, he will be returned to Abuja later on Wednesday.
