Emefiele has been charged – DSS

The Department of State Services (DSS) haa confirmed that the Former CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele has been charged to court in compliance with an Abuja High Court Order.This was disclosed today 14th June,2023 in a statement signed by Peter Afunanya, DSS Spokesperson.


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 therefore assured the public of professionalism, justice and fairness in handling this matter and indeed the discharge of its duties within the confines of the law.
