EFCC Fails To Produce Emefiele In Court, Judge Orders Release Again


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, on Monday, did not bring the former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele to court.

This was in defiance to an order by the Federal Capital Territory High Court on Thursday, ordering the commission to either release him or produce him in court for the hearing of a motion on his bail.

At the court proceedings on Monday, the former CBN governor was absent.

Emefiele’s lawyer, Mathew Burkaa, accused the EFCC of disobeying the court order.

He said, “They have flouted both orders as today marks the 149th day of the Applicant being in custody.

“The Applicant is still in the custody of the 3rd and 4th Respondents, up till this moment that we speak.”
