Breaking: Emefiele To Be Re-arrested By DSS Despite Granted Bail – Lawyers (Video)


Despite the bail application granted to the suspended Governor of CBN, Godwin Emefiele by the Federal High Court in Ikoyi on Tuesday, his lawyers have alleged that the Department of State Services are planning to re-arrest the apex bank chief.

The lawyers made this known while addressing journalists shortly after Tuesday’s arraignment of Emefiele.

Overtnews news had earlier reported that Emefiele appeared in court today, Tuesday, July 25 on a two-count charge bordering on illegal possession of firearms and ammunition by the DSS.

Although, Emefiele who appeared before Justice Nicholas Oweibo, pleaded not guilty to the two-count charge filed against him by the DSS.

His lead lawyer, Joseph Daudu SAN and a former President of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), told the court that his client has been in detention for weeks.

He also told Justice Oweibo that the application for bail has been filed and served on the prosecution.

But the DSS in a counter argument objected to the bail application, insisting that they have not been served.

This new website however learnt that the bail application was granted but in a fresh move by the DSS as alleged by lawyers to Emefiele there seems to be plans by the secrete police to re-arrest the apex bank chief.
