Emefiele has been out of the country for several weeks amidst fears he would be arrested by operatives of the State Security Service (SSS) who are investigating several allegations against him, including corruption and terrorism financing.
The prolonged stay of CBN governor Emefiele in the UK raised concerns among civic organizations and prominent individuals that he was being tried for his recent policies.
Concerns grew to the point that a judge in Abuja ordered the State Security Service (SSS) not to arrest Emefiele when he returned.
However, Premium Times reports that the CBN governor got President Muhammadu Buhari’s permission for two weeks of leave.
