Emefiele: We’ll appeal N100m fine – EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has expressed its dissatisfaction with a judgment of the Federal Capital Territory High Court awarding N100 million damages against it in favour of a former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele


Justice O.A Adeniyi, on Monday, January 8, 2024 fined the Commission after he ruled that the Commission’s detention of Emefiele in the course of his investigation was a violation of his right to liberty.

The EFCC, in a statement issued by its spokesman, Dele Oyewale on Monday, said the decision failed to take cognizance of the fact that the former CBN boss was held with a valid order of court.

“Consequently, the Commission will approach the Court of Appeal to set it aside,” the EFCC said.
