Emefiele Taken To Court In Compliance With Order -DSS

Governor of Central Bank

News Investigators/ The Department of State Security Services (DSS) has charged to Court the suspended Governor, Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele in compliance with earlier court order.

DSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya, disclosed this in a statement Thursday.

It is however not clear yet the specific charges proffered against the embattled ex-CBN governor.

“Sequel to an Abuja High Court Order of today, 13th July, 2023, the Department of State Services (DSS) hereby confirms that Mr Godwin Emefiele has been charged to Court in compliance with the Order.”

“The public may recall that the Service had, in 2022, applied for a Court Order to detain him in respect of a criminal investigation,” the statement added.

Mr. Afunnaya noted that, “Though he obtained a restraining Order from an FCT High Court, the Service, however, arrested him in June, 2023, on the strength of suspected fresh criminal infractions/information, one of which forms the basis for his current prosecution”

The Service, according to Afunanya, “assures the public of professionalism, justice and fairness in handling this matter and indeed the discharge of its duties within the confines of the law.”
