A FCT High Court on Friday, invalidated the arrest and detention of the suspended governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele.
The presiding judge, Bello Kawu, granted the order on Friday following an application by Emefiele.
On June 9, President Bola Tinubu suspended Emefiele and asked him to transfer his responsibilities to Folashodun Adebisi Shonubi, deputy governor, operations directorate.
The day after, the Department of State Services (DSS) announced that Emefiele was in its custody for “some investigative reasons”.
Emefiele has been in DSS custody since early June, with the service insisting that it obtained a valid court order to keep him.
On Thursday, the DSS disclosed that it has charged Emefiele to court, following a ruling from an FCT high court.
