The Nigerian Bar Association NBA has described as despicable, scuffle between operatives of the Department of State Services DSS and officers of the Nigerian Correctional Service NCOS over the custody of the suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria CBN, Godwin Emefiele.
NBA President, Yakubu Maikyau, in a statement today, called on the two agencies to take immediate disciplinary measures against the officers involved in the disgraceful conduct.
He said the altercation between officers of the two government agencies on the premises of the Federal High Court in Lagos is a recipe for anarchy and chaos, adding that it was a brazen disrespect for the sanctity of the court premises.
The secret police and prison officials caused a stir when they clashed on the court premises over the agency to take custody of the suspended and embattled apex bank chief after Justice Nicholas Oweibo admitted Emefiele to bail in the sum of the N20million.
