Court Stops DSS From Arresting Emefiele by nlfpmod: 9:58pm On Dec 19, 2022
A federal high court sitting in Abuja has declined an application by the Department of State Services (DSS) to arrest and detain Godwin Emefiele, governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), TheCable understands.

In declining the motion ex parte — filed by an applicant in the absence of the respondent — Justice JT Tsoho, the chief judge, said the secret police did not provide any concrete evidence to substantiate its claims that Emefiele was involved in terrorism financing and economic crimes.

Sources at the high court told TheCable that the judge said he should have been taken into confidence if there was any evidence to back the allegations.

The honourable judge also wondered why the name of the respondent was given simply as ‘Godwin Emefiele’ without a material disclosure that he is the same person as the CBN governor, a highly ranking public official who occupies an extremely sensitive position,” the source told TheCable.

The court said such an application should have been accompanied with the presidential approval because of the grave implications for the Nigerian economy if the CBN governor is arrested and detained.

There are suggestions that the bid to arrest Emefiele might be political given the impact the redesign of the naira and limit on cash withdrawals might have on vote-buying in the 2023 elections.

A number of politicians have complained that the naira redesign is targeted at them but President Muhammadu Buhari has given his full backing to Emefiele over the policy.

On Monday, a group of civil society organisations raised the alarm that there was a plot to frame Emefiele for terrorism and remove him from office.

DON’T BE USED TO UNDERMINE OUR INVESTIGATIONS, DSS WARNS

Meanwhile, DSS has warned Nigerians against being used to “undermine” its investigations.

In a statement issued on Monday, Peter Afunanya, DSS spokesperson, said the service will not be distracted by those seeking to use “propaganda” to undermine its lawful investigations.

Afunanya said one of the duties of the DSS is the “investigation of matters of national security dimension. It has always discharged this responsibility in the overall interest of Nigerian citizens”.

“As such, the Service will continue to disseminate actionable intelligence to the relevant authorities devoid of any sentiment,” the statement reads.

“While professionally discharging its mandate, the DSS pledges to remain focused and unbiased. It will not, by any means, succumb to propaganda, intimidation and the desperation of hirelings to undermine it.

“It will also not give room to the use of falsehood and deceit to misdirect public understanding and perceptions of issues of national importance.

“Given not to join issues, the Service warns those on a wild goose chase to be mindful of their actions. Similarly, it urges members of the public to disregard the vituperations and rantings of misguided elements and not allow themselves to be used as instruments of destabilisation.

“Notably, these elements should remember the famous axiom that ‘you will only deceive some people, some of the time, but not all people, all the time’.

“To put it succinctly, the Service will not be distracted by persons and/or groups from carrying out its duties to the Nation, citizens, and, President and Commander-in-Chief.”

Afunanya asked Nigerians to “avoid being used to thwart or undermine the Service and its lawful investigations as those who wish to act in the breach will be dealt with in accordance with the law”.

Emefiele should be arrested. Four days after the release of the new Naira notes by CBN, banks ATM have not started dispensing cash. Is this part of their plan, it's almost Christmas, when will banks ATM start dispensing cash.

Can you imagine

I think it's about time our judicial system stopped disgracing us. For crying out, this man is not immune to arrest. If find wanting should be arrested and prosecuted.

Apart from his corrupt dealings, his policies are anti people. I'm yet to see any real reform he championed to the banking sector that's really worth it. I only blame the president for allowing him to serve two terms.

First, he introduced ATM service charge when you withdraw from another bank. As if that is not enough, you can withdraw upto 40k with your bank's ATM at a time but only 10k at a time with other bank's ATM. Why?

Food importation ban yet inflation keep rocking the country and dollars which was around 400 before the ban is now 750 plus, why not reverse it because things are getting out of hands.

20k withdrawal limit when we are know that we ain't matured for that shit yet.

A card carrying member of the APC and still retained his position.

Trying and error CBN governor.

Emefiele must have really hurt these governors or power brokers with the naira change policy for them to come all out for him.

In as much as Emiefele should be arrested and dragged to court, it is not for political reasons like this.

The DSS seems like a willing tool for destabilization to the riggers.

Many are waiting to hear "Tinubu" or "Obi" before they decide if they should support or oppose him.

Something fishy is going on

It’s complicated

It’s huge

I keep thinking why the sudden fight between the DSS and Emefiele…

Stamp duty issues, The purported brekete family radio interview , the coalition that had a press conference today.

IT IS ALL CONFUSING
