Presidential Ambition Emefiele Asks Court to Stop FG INEC from Taking Actions

A former Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) governor Godwin Emefiele has pleaded not guilty to charges against him. 


He was arraigned at the Ikeja High Court over alleged abuse of office and allocation of billions of dollars.


The trial judge, Justice Rahman Oshodi preceded the 26-count charge to Emefiele and his co-defendant, Henry Omoile. But both defendants pleaded not guilty to all counts.


The defendants asked for bail pending the hearing and determination of the proceedings.


Godwin Emefiele is specifically asked the court to grant him bail on self-recognizance pending the hearing and determination of his case or in the alternative that he be released to his counsel pending the determination of the case.


His counsel, Lebi Lawal argued that the court should consider his status.


The counsel also says that this charge in Lagos is just one of the charges and Emefiele is likely to be arraigned on another set of fresh counts in Abuja next week.
