Court sends ex-CBN Gov, Emefiele to Kuje prison


An Abuja High Court on Friday ruled that former Central Bank Governor Godwin Emefiele be held in Kuje Correctional Centre until November 22.

The order was issued by Justice Hamza Muazu, who adjourned the case until Nov. 22, when Emefiele’s bail application will be considered.

Emefiele was arraigned on six count charges before Justice Muazu.

His lead counsel, Mathew Burkaa SAN, moved the application for bail which Rotimi Oyedepo vehemently opposed on behalf of the Federal Government.

After taking arguments for and against the application, Justice Muazu said a bench ruling could not be delivered in view of the plethora of authorities cited by the two parties.

The Judge said he needed a little time to study the authorities and peruse through the exhibits supplied by Emefiele to support his request for bail.
