Court orders SSS to charge Emefiele within 7 days


The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court, presided over by Justice Hamza Muazu, has issued an order directing the State Security Service (SSS) to bring charges against the suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, within one week. The court’s decision comes in the wake of Mr Emefiele’s arrest in Lagos on June 10 and subsequent detention at the SSS headquarters.

Joseph Dawodu SAN, the legal counsel representing Mr Emefiele, has indicated that an application for his client’s bail will be submitted for processing in the near future. The specific details of the charges brought against Mr Emefiele have not yet been disclosed.

It is worth noting that Mr Emefiele’s arrest occurred one day after he was suspended from his position as the governor of the CBN by President Bola Tinubu. Prior to his arrest, the SSS had accused Mr Emefiele of various crimes, including terrorism financing, allegedly funding the activities of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), and sabotaging the Nigerian economy.

Further updates and information regarding the charges against Mr Emefiele and any subsequent legal proceedings will be made available in due course.
