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

Earlier, an Abuja High Court ordered the secret police to charge Emefiele to court within one week or release him.

However, reacting to the court’s order on Thursday evening, the DSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya, said Emefiele has been charged to court.

The DSS spokesman, however, did not state the court where Emefiele was charged and did not state the allegations brought against the suspended bank chief before the undisclosed court.

“The public may recall that the Service had, in 2022, applied for a Court Order to detain him in respect of a criminal investigation,” Afunanya said in a statement late Thursday.

“Though he (Emefiele) 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 secret police assured the public of professionalism, justice and fairness in handling Emefiele’s case.

On Friday, June 9, 2023, President Bola Ahmed 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. The embattled suspended apex bank chief has since remained in the custody of the secret police.
