Godwin Emefiele, former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, who was charged on twenty-six counts, will be arraigned this morning, April 8, 2024, with Justice Rahman presiding over the case. He showed up at the Ikeja State High Court, Lagos, this morning for arraignment over gross misconduct alongside his co-defendant, Henry Isioma Omole.


The Economic and Financial Crime Commission alleged that Emefiele “directed to be done in abuse of the authority of your office, as the Governor, Central Bank of Nigeria, an arbitrary act, to wit: allocating foreign exchange in the aggregate sum of $2,136,391,737.33 without bids, which act is prejudicial to the rights of Nigerians.”


As this is a developing story, full details of the court proceedings will be shared later.
