CBN Gov, Emefiele ‘Secretly’ Returns To Nigeria Amidst Fear Of Arrest

Godwin Emefiele, the embattled governor of the Central Bank, is said to have arrived back in the nation on Wednesday, despite rising speculation that the Department of State Service may arrest him.

Following the investigation into many charges against him, including corruption and funding for terrorism, Emefiele has been out of the country for a while.

Remember that the Federal High Court in Abuja denied the DSS’s request for an arrest warrant for Mr. Emefiele.

The CBN governor was allegedly involved in “acts of financing terrorism, fraudulent operations, and economic crimes of national security significance,” according to the DSS’s motion, which asked the court to order his detention.


On December 7, 2022, the DSS submitted the application to the court with the marking FHC/ABJ/CS/2255/2022.

The lawsuit was filed “ex parte,” which means Mr. Emefiele was not notified of it. Mr. Emefiele was the only defendant.

A source who talked with the online news outlet Premium Times claims that the CBN governor received approval from President Major-General Muhammadu Buhari (ret.) for a two-week leave that ended on Tuesday.

He had to go to work on Wednesday because his vacation had ended on Tuesday, the person claimed.

The online news source further stated that Mr. Emefiele intends to depart the nation once more very soon out of fear that he may be detained by the secret police as a result of the ongoing power struggle at the Federal Government.

“He is trying to leave within the next few days on the pretence of attending the annual World Economic Forum,” their source said.


However, as of Thursday afternoon, attempts to contact Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, and Osita Nwanisobi, the spokeswoman for the Central Bank of Nigeria, for comments had failed.
