In compliance with an Abuja High Court order, the State Security Service, SSS, has charged the suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Godwin Emefiele, to court.

Recall that on Thursday, the High Court, presided over by Hamza Muazu, had asked the secret police to release the embattled apex bank helmsman or charge him to court.

Delivering a ruling on Mr Emefiele’s fundamental human rights enforcement suit, the judge held that the Nigerian constitution is rooted in the rule of law and presupposes that all actions must be done according to the law.

Releasing a statement Thursday evening announcing the legal action, the SSS spokesperson, Peter Afunanya, said the secret police assured Nigerians of professionalism, justice and fairness in handling the matter

The statement recalled 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 statement added.
