• Godwin Emefiele

Former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele on Friday pleaded not guilty to the amended 20-count charges brought against him by the federal government.

The government through the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Thursday, increased the charges against Emefiele from six to twenty.

When he was re-arraigned at the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court in Maitama, Abuja, on Friday, January 19, before Justice Adamu Muazu, Emefiele denied all the charges against him.

The trial has, however, been adjourned to the 12th and 13th of February for trial.
