EFCC Fails To Produce Ex-CBN Gov, Emefiele In Court 

Just In: Emefiele Reportedly Opts For Plead Bargain With FG

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on Monday, failed to produce the former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele at the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory.

Vox9ja understands that Emefiele was not produced in court despite an order of a trial judge, Justice Olukayode Adeniyi for EFCC to produce him in court for hearing of his motion on fundamental rights enforcement.

Justice Adeniyi had last week ordered the anti-graft agency to release the former CBN governor unconditionally or produce him in court for the hearing of a motion determining his bail.

This follows his arrest by the EFCC shortly after his release from the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) in late October.

The court has now adjourned till Wednesday, November 8 for a hearing of Emefiele’s motion on notice and for his counsel to provide additional documents.
