Tension As DSS Storms CBN’s Office , Takes Charge Of Emefiele’s Office

Operatives from the Department of State Service (DSS) allegedly raided the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) offices in an effort to detain its governor, Godwin Emefiele.

Remember that the DSS and the CBN governor have reportedly been engaged in ongoing disputes over alleged financial terrorism.

Emefiele is now abroad on his yearly leave, which expires on Tuesday, January 17, 2023, and the secret police had requested a court order to arrest him.

The DSS was forbidden by an Abuja federal high court in December from inviting, arresting, or detaining the troubled Emefiele.

On Monday afternoon, January 16, 2023, DSS operatives stormed the apex bank with about 20 vehicles with armed personnel.

On arriving at the bank, the security operatives barred staff of the CBN from having access to Emefiele’s office.

A query sent to the spokesperson of the DSS, Peter Afunanya, was yet to be responded to as of the time of writing this report.
