Breaking: Emefiele granted N20m bail

By Our Correspondent

A Federal High Court sitting in Lagos has granted bail to the suspended Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Mr. Godwin Emefiele.

He was granted bail the sun of N20million and a surety in like sun.

The bail followed a two -count charge of illegal possession of firearm brought against him by the Department of State Service, DSS.

Recall that Emefiele has been in DSS custody for over a month.

Emefiele's lawyer, Mr. Joseph Daudu, SAN, had after his client pleaded not guilty to the two count charge, applied for his bail, contending that the offense for which Emefiele was charged is bailable.

Emefiele was brought to court in a white Hillux Pick-up van, with the plate number covered, around 9.23a.m.

On arrival at the court, Emefiele stepped down from the van and was assisted by a female, whose identity could not be confirmed at press time.

He was assisted to the court room of Justice Nicolas Oweibo, trial judge in the matter.
