The Department of State Services (DSS) has confirmed that Mr Godwin Emefiele, the suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) is now in its custody for some investigative reasons.
Peter Afunanya, Public Relations Officer, Department of State Services, in a statement, urged the public, particularly the media, to apply utmost caution in the reportage and narratives concerning this.
Akelicious had earlier reported that Emefiele was suspended “sequel to the ongoing investigation of his office and the planned reforms in the financial sector of the economy.”
This was disclosed in a statement signed by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, George Akume.
Following Emefiele’s suspension, Tinubu appointed Mr Folashodun Adebisi Shonubi as the acting CBN governor.
