Fed govt. appeals order grantìng Emefiele bail

The battle for lawful custody of the suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele will resume today at the Federal High Court in Lagos.

Two fresh applications by both the banker and the Federal Government will come up for consideration.



The first application – filed by the government on August 3 – is seeking leave to appeal against the July 25 order of vacation judge Justice Nicholas Oweibo which granted Emefiele bail.

The second – filed by Emefiele on August 8 – is asking the court to stop the Federal Government from further prosecuting him on the charge of illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition or any other charge.
