Emefielie’s rights enforcement plea waits till July 13 

The suspended governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, Mr Godwin Emefiele will on July 13 know his fate over his detention by the Directorate of State Services.

Credible News reports that Emefiele was asked to vacate his seat on 9 May to allow the government to start a probe into the operations of the apex bank under his watch. The State Security Service has since detained Mr Emefiele.

Since his arrest, he had been kept incommunicado by the secret service.

He approached a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, through his lawyer, Chief Joesph Daudu, SAN, to secure an order to allow him access to his family members and lawyers, which the court granted last week.

However, after listening to counsels in the matter on Tuesday, the Court fixed July 13 for a ruling.
