Breaking….Emefiele’s request to travel out of Abuja granted



Suspended CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele

The embattled former Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Godwin Emefiele, has been granted bail by Justice Hamza Muazu of the Federal Capital Territory High Court on his request to travel out of the FCT.

The court said Emefiele must, however, remain in the country. On his bail terms, he was restricted to the FCT.

Emefiele, through his lawyer, Mathew Bukka, SAN, had requested a variation of the terms.

The Counsel of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC), Rotimi Oyedepo, SAN, did not object.

He told the court to ensure that Emefiele wrote an undertaking that he would remain in the country if his plea was granted.

The charge against the former governor of the CBN was also amended to 20 from 6.

The amended charges against Emefiele now include criminal breach of trust, forgery, conspiracy to commit forgery, procurement fraud, and conspiracy to commit a felony.
