The Department of State Services (DSS) says it has charged the suspended governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria ( CBN), Godwin Emefiele to court.
The DSS in a statement in Abuja Thursday evening said the development was sequel to an Abuja High Court Order of today, 13th July, 2023.
Public Relations Officer, DDS in the statement reminded the public 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,” Afunanya said.
