Nigeria: EFCC detains Emefiele after his release by DSS

By Ahmad Hadizat Omayoza, Mamos Nigeria

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has arrested the former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele.

Emefiele was picked up on Thursday evening, less than an hour after he was released from Civil Service Ministry custody.

It is learned that the former CBN governor is currently being interrogated at the EFCC National Headquarters in Jabi, Abuja.

Vanguard has learned that the EFCC is investigating a former CBN governor for alleged corruption during his tenure as head of the apex bank.

Recall that the DSS arrested Emefiele in his June month and President Bola Tinubu suspended him with immediate effect on the same day.

According to the president, Emefiele was suspended at the time due to “ongoing investigations into his office and planned reforms in the financial sector of the economy.”
