DSS takes Emefiele to court for criminal offences

After a Thursday order by an FCT High Court, the Department of State Services, DSS, said it has chargedthat the suspended and detained Central Bank Governor, Mr Godwin Emefiele, has been charged to court in compliance with the order.

The DSS spokesperson, Peter Afunanya in a statement confirmed that charges have been filed against Emefiele.

“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,” the statement read.
