The Department of State Services (DSS) has charged embattled suspended Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, to court.

This is sequel to an Abuja High Court order of Thursday, July 13, 2023 that Emefiele be charged to court within one week or released.

DSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya, confirmed that Emefiele has been charged to court in compliance with the court order.

On Friday, June 9, 2023, President Bola Tinubu suspended Emefiele as the apex bank’s chief and directed that the bank’s Deputy Governor of Operations, Folashodun Shonubi, resume office in an acting capacity.

The next day, the DSS confirmed that Emefiele is in its custody.

Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN) had counselled the secret police not to mess up the case involving the suspended CBN chief by prosecuting him for alleged money laundering and economic crimes which fall under the purview of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

He had advised that the DSS probe Emefiele for alleged terror financing and transfer him to the EFCC for prosecution for alleged money laundering.
