A Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered the remand of Godwin Emefiele, former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), to Kuje Correctional facility pending ruling on his bail application.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had arraigned the former bank chief on a six-count amended charge.
Emefiele was arraigned before Justice Hamza Muazu.
Mathew Burkaa, SAN, his counsel, had moved the application for his bail but Rotimi Oyedepo, the EFCC counsel, opposed on behalf of the Federal Government.
After listening arguments, Justice Muazu said he needed a little time to study the exhibits supplied by Emefiele to support his request for bail.
He thereafter adjourned the case till November 22, 2023.
