Rights lawyer, Femi Falana has accused the Department State Security Service (DSS) of quietly declaring Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria CBN, Godwin Emefiele wanted.
Falana stated this on Channels Television during an interview session on Sunday politics, where he expressed displeasure over the recent case against the CBN Governor.
He said the secret police should file a proper charge against Emefiele so that he could enter into defense.
He said: “I can say without fear or contradiction that Mr Godwin Emefiele is not in Nigeria, he hasn’t returned to the country because he has been quietly declared wanted by the State Security Service (SSS).
“This can only happen in a banana republic where the governor of the CBN will be accused of a grave offense of terrorism financing. The details are not stipulated, they are not outlined. These guys play on our collective intelligence because they know we are very forgetful.
“You can’t raise such a serious allegation against a governor of the CBN and then pretend that nothing has happened.
“Has the government considered the enormous implications of the effect of a wanted governor of the CBN on the economy?
“I expect the SSS to come out with the allegations, and if Mr Emefiele is not going to return to the country, file a charge in the federal high court so that he can get his lawyers and prepare his defense”.
