Godwin Emefiele, former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), regained his freedom last night and was immediately picked up by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
ONIFTV understands that he is being interrogated and there are indications that fresh charges will be filed against him.
Emefiele had been in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) since June after President Bola Tinubu handed him a suspension.
He was thereafter asked to transfer his responsibilities to Folashodun Adebisi Shonubi, then deputy governor, operations directorate at the apex bank.
The day after, the DSS announced that Emefiele was in its custody for “some investigative reasons”.
On July 25, he was arraigned on a two-count charge bordering on “illegal possession” of firearms at a federal high court in Lagos, and was granted bail in the sum of N20 million.
