Again, former CBN Governor Godwin Emefiele regains his freedom after meeting his bail conditions.

Former CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele, has been released from the Kuje Correctional Centre after meeting his mere N300 million bail condition. He was released on Friday, December 22, 2023.

The spokesperson for the Kuje Correctional Centre, FCT, Adamu Duza, confirmed the news on Saturday, December 23, 2023, stating that Emefiele had met his bail conditions and had no reason to stay in the facility.

The judge instructed Emefiele to deposit all his travel documents with the court registrar and stay within the Abuja Municipal Area Council.

It should be recalled that the judge had initially ordered him to remain in Kuje Correctional Centre until he fulfilled the bail conditions.

Despite objections from the EFCC, Justice Muazu, who presided over the case, disagreed that Emefiele posed a flight risk or could jeopardize the investigation. After granting bail, the judge scheduled the trial on November 28.
