Emefiele Appears In Court, Seeks Variation Of Bail Conditions

Former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, is currently in court to seek variation of his bail conditions.

The former CBN governor is standing trial on six counts bordering on procurement fraud to the tune of N1.2bn.

This was the first time he would be making an appearance in court without stern-looking armed security personnel guiding him to the courtroom.

Emefiele was released from Kuje Custodial Centre on December 23, 2023, 34 days after the judge admitted him to bail.

He is asking the court to review some terms of his bail conditions.

Justice Hamza Muazu of the FCT High Court is currently listening to argument on the matter.
