Emefiele will remain in prison until November 22, when the court will deliver a ruling on his bail motion.
His lead counsel, Mathew Burkaa SAN, moved the application for bail which Rotimi Oyedepo vehemently opposed on behalf of the Federal Government.
After taking arguments for and against the application, Justice Muazu said a bench ruling could not be delivered in view of the plethora of authorities cited by the two parties.

At the time of this report, officials of the Kuje prison authority have been contacted to bring a vehicle to convey him to prison.
