The Department of State Services (DSS) and its Director General have been issued a directive by a Federal High Court in Abuja.

The court ordered the DSS to immediately grant the suspended governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, unrestricted access to his lawyers and family members.

Justice Hamza Muazu gave the order on Friday, following an application by J.B. Daudu, counsel to Emefiele.

DAILY POST recalls that Emefiele was arrested by DSS on Saturday, following his suspension by President Bola Tinubu on Friday evening.

His counsel had informed the court that he had written letters to the DSS, particularly on June 14, for the purpose of taking further instructions from him, but the DSS has refused to respond to the application.

In ruling on the application, Justice Muazu said it is within Emefiele’s constitutional rights to have access to his lawyers and family members.
