Court reserves judgment in Kano governor’s appeal
Written by News Desk on November 6, 2023
In a related development, former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria Godwin Emefiele did not appear before the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory today.
This is despite an order of a trial judge, Justice Olukayode Adeniyi for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC to produce him in court for hearing of his motion on fundamental rights enforcement.
Justice Adeniyi had last week ordered the anti-graft agency to release the former CBN governor unconditionally or produce him in court for the hearing of a motion determining his bail.
This follows his arrest by the EFCC shortly after his release from the custody of the Department of State Services DSS late last month.
The court has now adjourned till Wednesday, November 8 for a hearing of Emefiele’s motion on notice and for his counsel to provide additional documents.
