Ex-CBN Gov Emefiele granted N300m bail

A former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, has been granted a N300 million bail.

This followed his arraignment on four counts of printing new Naira notes without observing due process.

Emefiele pleaded not guilty when the charges brought against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) was read.

The ex-Governor of the CBN is the only defendant in the charge before Justice Maryanne Anenih of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) in Maitama.

Other conditions attached to the bail include that he should produce two sureties who must each possess titled property within the Maitama area of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Justice Anenih also ordered the defendant to deposit his travel documents with the court and should not travel outside the country without the permission of the court.

The judge adopted the conditions attached to a similar bail earlier granted Emefiele by Justice Hamza Muazu (another judge of the High Court of the FCT), before whom he is being tried on another criminal case.
