Battle for Emefiele’s Custody: DSS wins despite court order, re-arrests the ex-CBN governor

…the battle

Operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS), on Tuesday, re-arrested suspended governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, after a tussle with officials of the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCS).

Emefiele’s re-arrest occurred on the premises of a Federal High Court in Lagos sitting in Ikoyi after Justice Nicholas Oweibo admitted the embattled and suspended apex bank chief to bail in the sum of the N20m.

The judge also ordered that Emefiele be remanded at the correctional center pending the fulfillment of the bail conditions, an order the DSS blatantly flouted.
