Court to Hear Emefiele, FG’s Custody Applications August 15

A federal high court in Lagos has fixed August 15 to entertain applications regarding the custody of Godwin Emefiele, suspended governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

Nicholas Oweibo, the presiding judge, on Thursday, adjourned hearing of the applications filed by the federal government and counsels to Emefiele.

On July 25, Emefiele was arraigned on a two-count charge bordering on “illegal possession” of firearms at a federal high court in Ikoyi and was granted bail in the sum of N20 million.

Oweibo, the judge, had ordered that Emefiele be kept in the custody of the Nigeria Correctional Service (NCoS) pending the fulfillment of his bail conditions.

But the Department of State Services (DSS) insisted that Emefiele must return to its custody — a development that led to the face-off between the secret police and prison officials.

After the face-off, DSS rearrested Emefiele on the court premises.
