In a recent development, the Arewa Youths Movement (AYM), a socio-cultural organization, has harshly attacked the Department of State Services (DSS) for re-arresting suspended Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor Godwin Emefiele. The AYM has called this action frivolous, invalid, and a contemptuous breach of an earlier court decision that dismissed terrorism claims against Emefiele.
Following the agency’s effort to take custody of the suspended Apex Bank Chief, a scuffle erupted on Tuesday between the secret police and officers of the Nigerian Correctional Service, NCoS. This outcome came after Emefiele was granted bail by Justice Nicholas Oweibo of the Federal High Court in Lagos, with the bail sum set at 20 million.
Following a furious physical fight, officers from the secret police are said to have taken Emefiele into custody.
Kabiru Yusuf, the group’s head, recently noted a significant milestone in a statement. Justice M. A. Hassan of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) issued a restraining order against the Department of State Services (DSS) and four other companies some months ago, it was discovered. The decision specifically forbade the arrest or imprisonment of Emefiele, the accused person, on suspicion of terrorism financing.
The judge presiding over the case has rendered a devastating decision against the Department of State Services (DSS), according to shocking revelations. The judge ruled that the DSS committed an improper and illegal act by urging former President Muhammadu Buhari to attack Emefiele. This exhortation was in reference to Emefiele’s critical role in establishing monetary policies and directives critical to national security and the economy. This decision has generated major questions regarding the DSS’s activities and their potential influence on the country’s financial stability.
According to recent reports, an FCT High Court Judge, Justice Hamza Muazu, has issued a judgment ordering the Department of State Services (DSS) to immediately free Emefiele from detention. An unidentified source mentioned the individual in question, whose complete name was not disclosed, and recalled the circumstances of the judgment.
The individual in question has passionately denounced the recent rearrest undertaken by the Department of State Services (DSS) in a sharply worded statement, claiming that it is both unjustified and a flagrant contempt for prior court orders that had rejected the terrorism allegations.
An individual has made an audacious request to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, encouraging him to act quickly and suspend the Director-General of the Department of State Services (DSS), Yusuf Bichi. Bichi is accused by the individual of continually abusing the judiciary and demonstrating a flagrant disdain for the fundamentals of the rule of law.
In a recent statement, Arewa youths slammed the Department of State Services (DSS) for re-arresting Emefiele, the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, on terrorist charges. According to the youths, the DSS’s conduct is not only unfounded but also shows a brazen disdain for a prior court judgment that dismissed the terrorism claims against Emefiele. In a disturbing series of events, an agency has consistently shown a flagrant contempt for judicial orders. A significant aspect of President Tinubu’s initial meeting with the nation’s security officials was a harsh warning that he would not accept any divergence in their efforts. The President emphasized the importance of unity and cooperation, stating that working at ‘cross purposes’ would not be tolerated under his government.
The DSS’s actions have been widely condemned as criminal. Those who conduct themselves in a way that conveys a sense of superiority, as if the laws that regulate society do not apply to them, have raised eyebrows. President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has made a dramatic effort to demonstrate his devotion to democratic ideals, intending to avert any potential unruliness within the agency.
