Justice Nicholas Oweibo of the Federal High Court in Lagos State has granted the bail application filed by the suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele.
The court set the bail at N20 million.
Emefiele’s counsel, Victor Okpala, SAN disclosed this immediately after the Court’s ruling Tuesday.
The court also rejected the Federal Government’s claim that it is yet to receive a copy of the bail application filed by Emefiele in his alleged gun possession trial.
The judge held that there was evidence that the government had been served.
The case was adjourned to November 14, 2023.
