Court Fixes Monday To Hear Emefiele’s Request For Bail

A High Court of the Federal Capital Territory sitting at Maitama has slated Monday to hear an application that is seeking the unconditional release of the embattled former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Godwin Emefiele, from detention.

Justice O.A. Adeniyi okayed the matter for hearing after he ordered counsel for Mr. Emefiele to put all the Respondents on notice to enable them to respond to the suit.

Cited as Respondents in the suit are the Federal Republic of Nigeria, the Attorney-General of the Federation, AGF, Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, as well as the anti-graft agency itself.

Godwin Emefiele had, in an ex-parte motion he filed before the court, sought an order to compel the EFCC to release him from custody, pending the determination of his fundamental right enforcement suit.

Alternatively, he prayed the court to grant him bail.
