BREAKING: Alleged economic sabotage: FG sets to dock ex-CBN Gov, Emefiele


Barely 24 hours after his trial was aborted, the Federal Government of Nigeria will put the Former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, on trial today.

This followed the alleged economic sabotage-related offences leveled against the former CBN Governor.

Emefiele, whose trial was aborted about 24 hours ago, will be arraigned at a High Court in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

A notice for his trial before Justice Hamza Muazu indicates that Emefiele will be docked along with one Ramalan Yaro.

A registrar with the court, who wished to remain anonymous, confirmed that Emefiele would be brought before the court this morning for his plea of guilty or not guilty to be taken.

Similarly, one of the lawyers in his defence team, Maxwell Opara, confirmed that the notice of arraignment had been served on the former CBN Governor for him to appear in court.

The former CBN governor will be produced in court by Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) Matthew Burkaa, who signed an undertaking to bring him for trial while being granted bail by Justice Olukayode Adegbola Adeniyi, also of the FCT High Court.
