The Department of State Security Service (DSS) has reportedly apprehended Aisha Ahmad, Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, in connection with an alleged fraudulent acquisition of shares in Polaris Bank and Titan Bank (Union Bank).
DSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya, neither confirms nor denies Ahmad’s custody or questioning status in a discussion with Channels Television on Sunday.
Additionally, reports suggest that Aisha is under interrogation regarding the raising of $300 million by Titan Bank for the Union Bank acquisition in 2022.
Afunaya clarifies that such invitations for questioning are conducted within the bounds of the law during investigations.
This incident follows the DSS’s previous arrest of Godwin Emefiele, Ahmad’s former boss at the CBN, who has remained in DSS custody since then.
It’s worth noting that Godwin Emefiele was suspended as the CBN governor on June 9th, as previously reported by PRIME TIME NEWS.
