The State Security Service (SSS) has transferred custody of former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), after over four of months of holding him over corruption allegations.
The SSS arrested the former CBN chief in Lagos on 10 June, a day after President Bola Tinubu suspended him from office.
The agency held him for months, raising concerns of violations of principle of rule of law by the Tinubu administration.
Top EFCC told PREMIUM TIMES yesterday that the SSS handed over Mr Emefiele to the commission on Thursday.
While in custody, Mr Emefiele who was suspended a day before his arrest by the SSS on 10 June, was said to have resigned to pave the way for the appointment of Olayemi Cardoso as the new CBN governor.
