The Department of State Services told the Federal Capital Territory High Court on Tuesday said that suspended Central Bank of Nigeria Governor, Godwin Emefiele, will flee the country if granted bail.

The Attorney General of the Federation also supported the argument of the DSS, describing Emefiele as a “flight risk.

The former head of the apex bank is challenging his detention by the DSS and denying him seeing his family members and lawyers.

It was gathered that Emefiele was suspended by President Bola Tinubu and subsequently detained by the DSS on Saturday, June 10, this year.
