Lawyers under the aegis of united lawyers for Rule of law defence have heavily criticised the midnight invasion of the Lagos residence of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor, Dr Godwin Emefiele, and his forceful arrest by men of the Department of State Services (DSS), describing the development as undemocratic.

They subsequently called for his release out of respect for the court and the rule of law.

The statement read “A High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, in December 2022, barred the Department of State Services and the Inspector General of Police from arresting and detaining the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, over allegations of terrorism and sundry offences against him.

“Also restrained by the court order are the Attorney General of the Federation, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and the Central Bank of Nigeria, who were listed as the first, second and fifth defendants.
