Godwin Emefiele, suspended governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Mr Godwin Emefiele, on Thursday, avoided cameras on his arrival at the Federal Capital Territory High Court on Thursday.
Emefiele, who has been in custody of the Department of State Services since his arrest after President Bola Tinubu suspended him on June 9, exchanged pleasantries with his team of lawyers in court.
But when the DSS operatives brought him to the court, journalists were not allowed to freely take pictures and capture him on camera as the defendant’s lawyers also shielded him.
Federal Government had withdrawn the illegal possession of firearms charge it filed against Emefiele and filed fresh charges.
One of the counts against the suspended CBN boss is “conferring unlawful advantages”. He was also accused of engaging in conspiracy and procurement fraud, among others.
