Breaking: DSS Reacts To Reports Of Arresting Emefiele After ‘Invading’ CBN

The Department of State Services (DSS) has decided to clear the air on invading the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) on Monday.

There had been speculations that operatives of the secret police stormed CBN to arrest the Governor of the apex bank, Godwin Emefiele.

The news of the invasion broke the internet following the report that Emefiele had returned to office after his two weeks’ leave ended.

Emefiele’s resumption was confirmed by the CBN Director of Corporate Communications, Osita Nwanisobi in a statement released on Monday.

Nwanisobi said, “The apex bank governor resumed with renewed vigour to perform his duty ahead of the first Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) meeting of the year scheduled for January 23 to 24, 2023.

“Mr Emefiele remains committed to performing the task before him in line with his oath of office and the policy direction of President Muhammadu Buhari.”

The spokesperson of DSS, Peter Afunanya, however, in a statement released on Monday said DSS did not invade CBN.

He further stated that the CBN Governor was not arrested.

The statement reads, “The attention of the Department of State Services (DSS) has been drawn to the false news making the round that its operatives invaded the Central Bank of Nigeria and arrested its Governor, today 16/1/23. This is fake news and quite misleading.”
