*SSS Operatives Allegedly Cordon Off Apex Bank

The Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Mr Godwin Emefiele has reportedly resumed office today, 16th of January, 2022.

Mr Emefiele who has been out of the country on leave has been the subject of a long-running controversy spanning the last few weeks over attempts by the State Security Service(SSS) to arrest him over allegations of terrorism financing.

According to information made available to SPY NIGERIA by a reliable source, Emefiele arrived the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, this morning, and proceeded straight to his office.

He was reportedly accompanied by 5 Senior Advocates of Nigeria led by a Former Attorney General of the Federation understandably given the legal issues surrounding his attempted arrest by the SSS.

Meanwhile, the operatives of the State Security Service, SSS, have invaded the headquarters of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, taking over the office of the embattled governor of the apex bank, Godwin Emefiele.

Arriving at the CBN headquarters Monday noon, the SSS operatives came in with about 20 vehicles with armed personnel.

The operatives also barred all staff of the bank from gaining access to Mr Emefiele’s office.

Recall that there has been a running battle between the SSS and Mr Emefiele over alleged terrorism financing.

The secret service had earlier sought a court order to arrest Mr Emefiele but has been out of the country for his annual leave which is expiring tomorrow, January 17.

But the Federal High Court had in December barred the SSS from arresting, inviting, or detaining Mr Emefiele.
