The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, on Monday, opposed an application by former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele for the release of his passport to facilitate an overseas medical trip.
The Defence counsel, Labi-Lawal, had filed an affidavit seeking the release of Emefiele’s passport to enable him to travel to the United Kingdom for medical treatments.
The commission in a statement on Monday by the commission’s Head of Media and Publicity, Dele Oyewale, said the prosecution counsel, Muhammad Omeiza, in furtherance to the counter-affidavit, told the court that there was no medical report before the court showing that Emefiele was plagued by an ailment.
He added that if there was, there was no evidence to support that it could not be treated locally in Nigeria.
