Godwin Emefiele, the Central Bank of Nigeria’s (CBN) suspended governor, is not currently in its custody, according to the Department of State Services (DSS).
According to a statement from the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, George Akume, Emefiele’s suspension was “sequel to the ongoing investigation of his office and the planned reforms in the financial sector of the economy.”
