The judge made the order following the banker’s “not guilty” to a two-count charge filed against him by the Federal Ministry of Justice.

He rejected the Federal Government’s claim that Emefiele was a flight risk. The judge ruled that the government failed to provide any fact to support the claim.

Emefiele, 61, had filed the application through his team of counsel led by Chief Joseph Daudu, SAN, a former President of the Nigerian Bar Association.
