DSS arrests Godwin Emefiele

The suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele has been reportedly arrested.


The arrest was reportedly by DSS shortly after he was suspended by President Bola Tinubu on Friday.

According to the president, Emefiele was suspended due to the ongoing investigation of his office and the planned reforms in the financial sector of the economy.

Recall, the DSS, on December 7, 2022, in an exparte application with reference no: FHC/ABJ/CS/2255/2022, had sought an order to arrest the CBN Governor.

The security agency accused Emefiele of financing terrorism, fraudulent activities and economic crimes of national security dimension.

The Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, Justice J.T Tsoho, however, refused to grant the application of the DSS.
