Mr. Oyewale also said the trial judge, Justice O.A Adeniyi, had yesterday, fined the commission after he ruled that its detention of Emefiele in the course of his investigation was a violation of his right to liberty.

He added that the decision failed to consider that the former CBN boss was held with a valid order of court.
