THE Department of State Services has finally confirmed that the suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, is in its custody.

This is according to a statement by the Public Relations Officer (PRO), Peter Afunanya, today.

“The Department of State Services (DSS) hereby confirms that Mr Godwin Emefiele, the suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) is now in its custody for some investigative reasons,” it said.
“The public, particularly the Media, is enjoined to apply utmost caution in the reportage and narratives concerning this.”

The revelation comes hours after the DSS refuted reports that Emefiele was in its custody.

Amid reports of the arrest widely shared online, Afunanya said in a terse statement on Saturday morning, “Currently, Emefiele is not with the DSS.”

    Arrested, not arrested. Which is it, please?

    THESE ARE SERIOUS ALLEGATIONS AND I HOPE THEY ARE NOT TRUE.

    A sitting governor of the CBN financing terror acts in Nigeria. Including, all other atrocities.

    THIS CANNOT BE REAL AND TOO MUCH TO BELEIVE.

    Incredible and better not be true!
