In a gripping courtroom scene at the Federal High Court in Lagos, a compelling drama unfolded, pitting operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) against officials of the Nigeria Correctional Service (NCS) in a heated custody battle over the suspended Central Bank of Nigeria Governor, Godwin Emefiele.The former CBN Governor had been arraigned by the Federal Ministry of Justice on charges of illegal possession of firearms and ammunition. However, he entered a plea of “not guilty” and was subsequently granted bail in the amount of N20 million, on the condition of having one surety.As Emefiele’s legal team worked diligently to fulfill the bail requirements, tensions escalated within the court premises. DSS operatives, whose identities were fully concealed by hoods, squared off against NCS officials, each vying for the custody of the embattled central bank boss.Amidst the backdrop of this intense standoff, two Hilux vehicles, one representing each government agency, were strategically positioned near the court’s entrance. Adding to the spectacle, the Nigeria Correctional Service even brought in dogs, further heightening the already palpable atmosphere.Inside sources revealed that despite the court granting bail to Emefiele, there were alarming indications that the DSS operatives were considering a re-arrest of the former CBN Governor.The courtroom spectacle served as a vivid reminder of the significant stakes involved in the case, underscoring the gravity of the charges and the high-profile nature of the accused. As the legal battle continued to unfold, all eyes remained fixed on the proceedings, awaiting the outcome of this gripping tug-of-war over custody.
