FG reduces charges against Emefiele
The former CBN governor appeared in court on Friday for an application for bail, pleading not guilty to the six-count charge after it was read to him.
After he was released by the DSS, the embattled former CBN governor was immediately re-arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on October 27.
The federal government then amended the charges against him. According to the amended charge sheet, the charges still border on procurement fraud. The Federal Government alleged that Emefiele illegally bought 43 vehicles between 2018 and 2020 worth N1.2 billion.
