In a significant development, the immediate past Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, was granted bail by a Federal High Court in Lagos on Tuesday.
In a recent development, the court has granted Emefiele bail in the amount of N20 million, along with a requirement for a surety of equal value.
In a recent development, the Department of State Service (DSS) has brought forth a two-count charge against an individual for the alleged illegal possession of a firearm.
In a recent development, the legal representative of Mr. Emefiele, Joseph Daudu, has made a compelling argument in favor of his client’s bail. This comes after Mr. Emefiele pleaded not guilty to the two-count charge leveled against him. Daudu firmly maintains that the offense in question is indeed bailable.
In a recent development, the Department of State Services (DSS) apprehended Emefiele approximately one month ago following his suspension by President Bola Tinubu.
The defendant arrived at the courthouse this morning at approximately 9:23 a.m. in a sleek white Toyota Hilux pick-up van. Notably, the license plate was concealed, adding an air of mystery to the proceedings.
In a dramatic entrance at the court premises, Mr. Godwin Emefiele, the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, gracefully disembarked from the vehicle and was courteously aided by a female companion as he made his way towards Justice Nicolas Oweibo’s courtroom.
