Justice Hamza Muazu of the Federal Capital Territory High Court has granted the request of Godwin Emefiele, former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, to travel outside the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) while remaining in the country. The charges against Emefiele were amended from six to 20, including offenses such as criminal breach of trust, forgery, conspiracy to commit forgery, procurement fraud, and conspiracy to commit felony. Emefiele’s lawyer requested a variation of his bail terms, and the counsel for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission did not object, provided that Emefiele provided a written undertaking to remain in the country. Previously, Emefiele was granted bail in the amount of N300 million with two sureties in like sum, and he was required to deposit all his travel documents with the court registrar and stay within the Abuja Municipal Area Council while remanded in Kuje Prison. Emefiele was released from prison after his lawyers fulfilled the bail conditions.
