The Department of State Services (DSS) on Thursday said that the suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele has been charged to court in compliance with the order of the court.
This was contained in a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja by the spokesperson, Dr Peter Afunnaya
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.”
