Human rights lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Femi Falana says the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele has not returned to the country following allegations of terrorism financing leveled against him by the Department of State Services (DSS).
He stated this in a televised interview monitored by ENYIMBA FM.
Falana also said the DSS does not need a court order to arrest the CBN governor if the Service has concrete evidence against him.
He urged the DSS to proceed to arrest Emefiele upon his arrival in Nigeria, noting that the apex bank governor is not one of those constitutionally entitled to immunity in Nigeria.
Falana described as embarrassing the allegations against Emefiele by the DSS, saying this can only happen in a Banana Republic where the governor of the apex bank would be accused of a grave offence of terrorism financing.
