On Thursday, a Federal High Court in Lagos dismissed the firearm charges that had been filed against Godwin Emefiele, the suspended governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria.
The decision was made by Justice Nicholas Oweibo due to the lack of diligent prosecution. The Director of Public Prosecution of the Ministry of Justice, Mohammed Abubakar, had submitted an application to withdraw the charges.
During the previous hearing, the DPP had orally requested the court’s permission to drop the charges against Emefiele. He explained that this decision was based on emerging facts and circumstances that required further investigation. The DPP urged the court to approve the withdrawal application.
Further details will be provided at a later time.
