The Department of State Services, DSS on Saturday revealed that the suspended governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, is not in its custody.
The agency made this known via it’s Twitter handle on Saturday, June 10, 2023.
The post read, “Currently, Emefiele is not with the DSS.”
Recall that President Bola Tinubu suspended Emefiele from office with immediate effect on Friday night.
Following his suspension, Emefiele was directed to immediately hand over the affairs of his office to the Deputy Governor (Operations Directorate), who will act as the CBN governor pending the conclusion of the investigation and the reforms.
Unconfirmed reports emerged late on Friday that operatives of the Department of State Services had arrested the suspended CBN governor.
However, the spokesman for the DSS, Peter Afunaya said that he could not confirm the arrest.
Recall that the Naira on Friday depreciated further against the dollar at the Investors and Exporters window, exchanging N472.50 to the dollar.
This is coming just as President Bola Tinubu suspended the CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele.
The local currency showed a 0.64 per cent decrease when compared with N469.50 it exchanged for the dollar on Thursday.
The open indicative rate closed at N471.32 to the dollar on Friday.
