Emefiele pleads not guilty to 20-count charge



    Godwin Emefiele, the ex-governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, entered a plea of not guilty to the amended 20-count charges brought against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

    During his re-arraignment at the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court in Maitama, Abuja on Friday, January 19, Emefiele denied all charges.

    The trial has however been adjourned to the 12th and 13th of February for trial.

    The defense team pleaded that Emefiele be allowed to continue to enjoy his bail earlier granted him by the court.

    The prosecutor did not object, stating that they wanted him to attend his trial in good health.

    Emefiele’s bail condition was also sustained by the trial Judge, Justice Hamza Muazu.
