The Department of State Services (DSS) says it has charged embattled suspended Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, to court.
This was barely 24 hours after a Federal High Court ordered the Department of State Services, DSS, to either arraign or release suspended Central Bank Governor, Godwin Emefiele, from its custody.
The DSS spokesman Peter Afunanya, however, did not state the court where Emefiele was charged and did not state the allegations brought against the suspended bank chief before the undisclosed court.
“The public may recall that the Service had, in 2022, applied for a Court Order to detain him in respect of a criminal investigation.
“Though he (Emefiele) 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 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,” the DSS said.
