Court Finally Grants Bail to Godwin Emefiele Despite DSS Objection. In a recent development, Justice Nicholas Oweibo of the Federal High Court in Lagos State has ruled in favor of granting bail to the suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, amidst the objection from the Department of State Security (DSS).

The court dismissed the Federal Government’s claim that they had not received a copy of Emefiele’s bail application, asserting that there was sufficient evidence proving the government had been duly served with the application.


Emefiele’s legal team, led by Joseph B. Daudu, SAN, had presented the bail application and urged the court to consider granting the defendant bail on self-recognition. Daudu highlighted that all the necessary conditions for the application to be heard had been fulfilled.

He further pointed out that the court’s records contained proof of service, endorsed by the office of the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF). With this evidence in hand, Daudu implored the court to put an end to what he described as the “oppression of his client by the Department of State Security” and proceed with the bail application.

The decision by Justice Oweibo to grant bail to Godwin Emefiele represents a significant turn of events in the alleged gun possession trial, despite the objections raised by the DSS. The ruling marks a step towards justice and upholds the principle of fair treatment in legal proceedings.
