Emefiele: Case Adjourned As EFCC Fails To Produce Ex-CBN Governor In Court

Godwin Emefiele, the former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), was not produced by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in the Federal Capital Territory's High Court on Monday.

Despite a trial judge, Justice Olukayode Adeniyi, ordering the EFCC to produce Emefiele for the hearing of his motion on the enforcement of fundamental rights, Emefiele was not presented in court.

Last week, Justice Adeniyi gave the anti-graft agency an order to either present the former CBN governor in person for the hearing on a motion deciding his bail or release him unconditionally.

This comes after the Department of State Services (DSS) released him from their custody in late October, just before he was arrested by the EFCC.

The court has now adjourned until Wednesday, November 8 to hear Emefiele's notice motion and give his attorney time to provide further supporting documentation.


Additionally, it reiterated its directive from November 2 calling for Emefiele's unconditional release or his appearance in court on Wednesday.
