A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has granted the former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, bail.
On Wednesday, Justice Olukayode Adeniyi of the Federal High Court, Abuja, ordered that the former apex bank manager be released to his lawyers immediately.
According to the judge, Emefiele must also deposit his travel documents before the chief registrar of the court, pending his arraignment.
The judge faulted his detention without trial and advised the government to end that practice.
Justice Adeneyi added that the court must also not overlook the fact that he has been in detention for 151 days, and the Federal Government and the Attorney General of the Federation must abide by court order.
