The suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Godwin Emefiele, has been re-arrested by the Department of State Service DSS at the premises of the Federal High Court, Lagos.

The trial judge, Nicolas Oweibo, had granted Emefiele bail in the sum of N20 million and a surety in like sum.

The judge had also signed a warrant for his remand at Ikoyi prison, Lagos, pending when he perfects his bail.

But an earlier attempt by prison officials to take Emefiele into custody as ordered by the court led to the leader of the prison officials being manhandled by DSS operatives.

Recall that DSS had earlier, arraigned Emefiele on a two-count charge of illegal possession of firearms.
