TheTalk.NG recalls that Emefiele was arrested by the Department of State Services (DSS) on June 10, the day after he was suspended as CBN governor, and has since remained in custody.

The DSS only recently transferred him to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in late October.

Emefiele, 62, is standing trial on a six-count amended charge on alleged procurement of vehicles to the tune of N1.6bn.

He had pleaded not guilty to the charges. On November 17, 2023, he was granted bail to the tune of N300m, and two sureties and remanded at the Kuje Correctional Centre, pending when he meets his bail conditions. His case was adjourned till January 2024.

Speaking about the plight of the ex-CBN chief who some commenters have said looks frail, Primate Ayodele said in the video post:

“Emefiele, health will be deteriorating, let us put him in (our) prayers.”
