Emefiele is in our custody -DSS confirms
The suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, is in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) custody.
A statement issued by the Public Relations Officer (PRO), Peter Afunanya, on Saturday, confirmed the development.
“The Department of State Services (DSS) hereby confirms that Mr Godwin Emefiele, the suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) is now in its custody for some investigative reasons,” it said.
“The public, particularly the Media, is enjoined to apply utmost caution in the reportage and narratives concerning this.”
The revelation comes hours after the DSS refuted reports that Emefiele was in its custody.
Amid reports of the arrest widely shared online, Afunanya said in a terse statement on Saturday morning, “Currently, Emefiele is not with the DSS.”
