Oby Ezekwesili Condemns Treatment of Suspended CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele

…By for TDPel Media. Former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, has expressed strong disapproval of the arraignment of the suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele.


Emefiele faced charges brought against him by the Department of State Services (DSS) for the alleged illegal possession of a single-barrel gun and 23 live ammunitions.

During the court proceedings, Emefiele pleaded not guilty to the charges and was subsequently granted bail in the amount of N20 million.

Dispute Over Custody:

Following the court’s ruling, a dispute arose between DSS operatives and prison officials concerning Emefiele’s custody.


This unexpected clash raised concerns and led to speculations about the DSS’s intention to possibly rearrest the suspended CBN governor despite the court’s decision.

Ezekwesili’s Criticism of DSS:

Reacting to the unfolding events, Oby Ezekwesili took to Twitter to express her condemnation of the DSS’s treatment of Emefiele.

She criticized the Director-General of the DSS for publicly associating himself as a close friend of a political figure, which she perceived as unprofessional conduct.

Ezekwesili also questioned the DSS’s actions and urged them to be transparent and truthful with the Nigerian public regarding Emefiele’s case.

Demanding Accountability:

Ezekwesili further called on the security agency to apologize to Nigerians for their handling of Emefiele’s court case and accused them of attempting to manipulate the situation.


She emphasized the need for accountability and demanded clarity about the charges brought against the suspended CBN governor.

Criticism of Priorities:

In her posts, Ezekwesili expressed skepticism about the charges of “illegal possession of firearms” filed against Emefiele.

She criticized the prioritization of such charges over addressing the perceived monetary policy damage inflicted on the Nigerian economy and its people by Emefiele’s boss, President Muhammadu Buhari, and the former CBN.


The ongoing situation involving the suspended CBN governor, Godwin Emefiele, and the Department of State Services has elicited strong criticism from Oby Ezekwesili.

As a prominent figure in Nigerian public life, her statements shed light on concerns about transparency, accountability, and the prioritization of charges in high-profile legal cases.


The developments surrounding Emefiele’s case warrant careful attention and public scrutiny to ensure justice is served and the truth is revealed.
