An Abuja high court has ordered the Department of State Security (DSS) to immediately grant the former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mr Godwin Emefiele, unrestricted access to his lawyers and family members.

The order followed an application filed by Counsel to Emefiele, Mr J.B. Daudu (SAN).

Daudu informed the court that he had written letters to the DSS, particularly on June 14, for the purpose of taking further instructions from Emefiele. But DSS refused to respond to the application.

Suit No. FCT/HC/CV/1450/2023, which Emefiele filed as the applicant has three respondents including, the Attorney General of the Federation of Nigeria, the Director General, the State Security Service and the State Security Service.

Justice Mu’Azu upon hearing the oral application granted the order as sought by the applicant.
