A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has granted an immediate order to the Department of State Services (DSS) to grant the suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, unrestricted access to his lawyers and family members as it is within his constitutional rights. 

Justice Hamza Muazu granted the order following an application by J.B. Daudu SAN, counsel to Emefiele. 

Daudu told the court that he had sent letters to the DSS, particularly on June 14, seeking further instructions from him (Emefiele), but that the DSS had not responded.

Recall that Emefiele was arrested by the DSS on Saturday, hours after his suspension by President Bola Tinubu on Friday evening.
