DSS Charges Emefiele to Court

NGDSS Charges Emefiele to Court

The Department of State Security (DSS) Thursday said  it had charged suspended  Governor of Central Bank (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, to court.

An Abuja High Court had ordered that Emefiele be charged to court within seven days or be set free.

A statement by the Spokesman of DSS, Peter Afunanya, said the development was in compliance with an Abuja High Court order.

“Sequel to an Abuja High Court Order of today, 13th July, 2023, the Department of State Services (DSS) hereby confirms that Mr Godwin Emefiele has been charged  to court in compliance with the 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. 

“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”, he said. 

The agency assured the public of “professionalism, justice and fairness in handling this matter and indeed the discharge of its duties within the confines of the law”.
