WE’VE CHARGED EMEFIELE TO COURT – DSS
Today, the Department of State Services (DSS) dragged embattled Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mr. Godwin Emefiele to court. This was revealed in a press statement e-signed and released to the National Association of Online Security News Publishers, NAOSNP by the DSS PRO, Peter Afunanya.
The statement reads: ‘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.’
‘The Service assures the public of professionalism, justice and fairness in handling this matter and indeed the discharge of its duties within the confines of the law’, Afunanya concluded.
