Justice Hamza Muazu of High Court of the Federal Capital Territory has remanded the former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, in Kuje prison pending the determination of his bail application.
He ordered that Emefiele be kept in prison custody until November 22, when the court will deliver a ruling on his bail motion.
The order was sequel to the objection to the bail application raised by Rotimi Oyedepo, counsel to the Federal Government.
Emefiele’s lawyer, Mathew Burkaa SAN, moved the bail application at Friday’s sitting.
After taking arguments for and against the bail application, Justice Muazu said a bench ruling could not be delivered in view of the plethora of authorities cited by the two parties.
The Judge said he needed a time to study the authorities and peruse through the exhibits supplied by Emefiele to support his request for bail.
