The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is set to arraign former Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor, Mr. Godwin Emefiele on May 15 in a Federal Capital Territory Court on a three-count amended charge in a fresh indictment by the EFCC.

According to the allegations, Former CBN Governor, Mr. Emefiele disobeyed the law with the intent to harm the public during his execution of the naira swap policy under the administration of Former President Muhammadu Buhari.

Additionally, the Anti-Graft Agency accused him of unlawfully approving the withdrawal of N124.8 billion from the Consolidated Revenue Fund of the federation.

According to newsmen, the arraignment was earlier slated before Justice Maryan Anenih.

However, all the parties were not present in court when the matter, with case number: CR/264/2024 was called.

The Court said that the prosecution sent a letter seeking for an adjournment because Mr. Emefiele was standing trial in another court in Lagos.
