Former Central Bank of Nigeria ( CBN) Governor, Godwin Emefiele, who was recently suspended from his esteemed position, has escalated the ongoing drama by initiating legal proceedings to counter the prosecution efforts launched by the Federal Government.Emefiele

The turmoil unfolded after Godwin Emefiele’s arrest by the Department of State Services (DSS) on allegations of illegal firearm possession, only to be subsequently released on bail. However, Emefiele contends that the government’s actions flagrantly disregard the court’s bail directives, prompting him to take a stand against what he perceives as an infringement upon his rights.
Guided by the seasoned legal expertise of Mr. Joseph Daudu, SAN, Emefiele’s legal team has launched a resolute endeavor to have all charges against him dismissed, and further impede the government’s endeavors unless it adheres rigorously to the court’s bail pronouncements. Emefiele
At the heart of his argument lies a fervent defense of his constitutional rights and the principles enshrined in the Administration of Criminal Justice Act. His objective, as stated by his legal representation, is to urge the government and the Department of State Services to honor the sanctity of the court’s orders, thereby upholding the integrity of the legal process.

The unfolding legal battle has now cast the spotlight on the court, where Emefiele’s plea is poised for meticulous consideration. The Department of State Services, too, is entrenched in the burgeoning legal conflict, adding further complexity to an already contentious situation.
