The High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), sitting in Maitama on Wednesday, granted the embattled former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele bail.
Justice Adeniyi ordered the federal government to release Emefiele to his lawyers. He also instructed lawyers for the former CBN Governor to deposit his passport in court.
He however instructed his lawyers to produce him in court on November 15 when he is scheduled to be arraigned before another judge of the High Court of the FCT in a charge earlier filed by the EFCC against him and one other person.
Emefiele, who has been in the custody of Security agencies for over 149 days, was brought to court by operatives of the EFCC.
Dressed in yellow native attire and a cap, the former CBN Governor was led into the courtroom at about 12:30 pm.
