BREAKING: DSS Complies With Court Order, Charge Emefiele To Court

The Department of State Services (DSS) has charged embattled suspended Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, to court.

This is sequel to an Abuja High Court order of Thursday, July 13, 2023 that the secret police charge Emefiele to court within one week or release him.

Hours after the court order, DSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya, confirmed that Emefiele has been charged to court in compliance with the court 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,” Afunanya said in a statement late Thursday.

“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 secret police assured the public of professionalism, justice and fairness in handling Emefiele’s case.
