Ex CBN Governor Godwin Emefiele to be Detained in Kuje Prison Pending Bail Decision

Justice Hamza Muazu of the High Court in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, has mandated the incarceration of ex-Central Bank Governor Godwin Emefiele at Kuje prison until November 22.

The court will then rule on Emefiele’s bail request, following a contentious legal exchange between his lead counsel, Mathew Burkaa SAN, and Rotimi Oyedepo, representing the Federal Government.

Justice Muazu deferred a bench ruling, citing the need to examine the numerous legal references and exhibits presented in support of Emefiele’s bail application.

Kuje prison authorities have been notified to arrange transportation for Emefiele.
