DSS charges Emefiele to court



….yet to reveal charges against CBN governor

The Department of State Services(DSS),  on Thursday, said it has charged the Governor of the Central Bank, Godwin Emefiele, to court. 

This information was released mere hours after a Federal High Court in Abuja ordered DSS to either arraign or release suspended Central Bank Governor, Godwin Emefiele, from its custody.

The Spokesman for the DSS, Dr. Peter Afunanya, who gave the information in a statement on Thursday night, did not however give the details of the charges levied against Emefiele or the court in which the case is pending.

Afunanya said: “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.

“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 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.
