Turner, who is the Obanema of Opume Kingdom in Bayelsa State, has known Jonathan since their university days at the University of Port Harcourt. Turner is a former managing director of the Niger Delta Development Commission(NDDC). Turner and Jonathan have remained close till date.

Sometime back, Turner told CNN that, “The Jonathan I know doesn’t rush into making decisions and likes to involve a wide range of people and experts.
That process takes time and can appear slow, but that is his style.”

On Monday, 9th February 2016, operatives of the Directorate of State Security (DSS) raided the Maitama residence of Turner and carted away some documents, including insignificant amount of dollars, pound sterling, naira and rupees.

Although the DSS is yet to disclose why the raid happened while the first-class king was away in Yenagoa in Bayelsa State, it may not be unconnected with his closeness with Goodluck Jonathan.

What the DSS operatives carted away from Turner’s residence are:

1) 60 pieces of £50 note;
2) 46 pieces of £20 note;
3) 113 pieces of $100 note;
4) N5,000 (N1000 note);
5) 230 Indian rupee;
6) Complimentary cards of TRENUR Nigeria Ltd – HRH King A.J Turner, 60 Mississippi, Maitama, Abuja;
7) A document containing account numbers of Miss Havi Mabel Turner; Miss Apelega Inengite; A.J Turner and TRENUR Nigeria Ltd;
8) Income & Expenditure book of M.D Matelbot Oil Nigeria Ltd;
9) A document on campaign fund-raising;
10) Some documents on financial transactions.
