Central Bank of Nigeria CBN Governor Godwin Emefiele

The Department of State Services (DSS) has released the former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Godwin Emefiele.

A source quoted by PUNCH on Friday, however, said Mr Emefiele was taken into custody on Thursday night by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) less than an hour after his release by the DSS.

“Yes, Emefiele is currently in our (EFCC) custody; he was arrested last night less than an hour after the DSS freed him,” the source said.
