EFCC To Arraign Emefiele On Fresh Charges.


The economic and financial crimes commission (EFCC) will on May 15 arraign former central bank of Nigeria (CBN) governor Godwin Emefiele, in a federal capital territory (FCT) court on a three-count amended charge.

In the fresh charge filed against him, the EFCC alleged that Emefiele disobeyed the direction of law with intent to cause injury to the public during his implementation of the naira swap policy of the administration of former president Muhammadu Buhari.

The anti-graft agency also accused Emefiele of unlawfully approving the withdrawal of ₦124.8 billion from the consolidated revenue fund of the federation.

Emefiele is also standing trial before justice Hamza Muazu of the FCT high court on an alleged 20-count amended charge, preferred against him by the anti-graft agency.
