According to Newsmen, a squad of police officers is currently laying siege to the Maitama home of Central Bank Governor Godwin Emefiele.
The armed police officers, numbering over ten, were observed by our correspondent at about 8:40 p.m. Tuesday night besieging the embattled governor of the apex bank’s residence at No. 8 Colorado Street, Maitama, Abuja.
According to a reliable source within the NPF, the siege is in preparation for Emefiele’s scheduled appearance at the Federal High Court in Abuja tomorrow, Wednesday, over a $53 million judgment obligation resulting from the Paris Club refund.
The source said, “The governor is expected to be in court tomorrow over the $53 million judgment debt in relation to the Paris Club refund which he’s yet to clarify.
“The police officers are not there to arrest, but they’re there to ensure that he doesn’t run away again as he did weeks ago.”
Meanwhile, the Federal Capital Territory Police Command and the Force Headquarters have both denied knowledge of the siege.
When reached, the Force Public Relations officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, responded, “I have no information of such event. Please, however, contact the FCT Command.”
When reached by our journalist, the FCT PPRO, Josephine Adeh, also denied knowledge of the siege.
Adeh said, “I don’t know anything about policemen surrounding the CBN governor’s home. You could contact the Force Headquarters.”
