Emefiele: Ohaneze youths hail Buhari, judiciary for quashing trumped up charges against CBN governor

Ohanaeze Youths Movement has hailed President Muhammadu Buhari and the judiciary over the court judgement that quashed the move by the Department of Security Services, DSS to charge Central Bank Governor, CBN Governor, Mr. Godwin Emefiele with trumped up charges of terrorism financing.

It will be recalled that Justice M.A. Hassan of an FCT High Court, Abuja had in a judgement, Thursday, barred the DSS from inviting, arresting, detaining or charging the CBN Governor with any allegation of terrorism or fraudulent act.

The Justice described the plot to arrest Emefiele on terrorism charges as oppressive, baseless, fabricated and unacceptable.

Lauding the judgement, Ohanaeze Youth group in a statement signed by its secretary, General Nwada Amaka urged Buhari to question the Director-General of the DSS, Yusuf Bichi over his role in the failed plot to frame Emefiele for terrorism, alleging he has appeared unfocused on his core assignment.

According to the group, the security agency has sadly allowed itself to be used by politicians to intimidate and harass innocent citizens.

The statement read: “What DSS recently planned to do to the CBN Governor cannot be swept under the rug like in the past.

“The DG DSS must be investigated over his role in the failed plot to frame Emefiele for terrorism. On what grounds are you framing a man for terrorism just for discharging his duties?

In a related development, the Middlebelt Youths also said the failed attempt by the DSS to charge Emefiele on “baseless terrorism allegations is a bad way to reward him for the intervention programs North.”

The group in a statement by its leader Comrade Godwin Meliga on Friday said that the institution’s interventions in several sectors saved the Nigerian economy from collapsing in the last 6 years.
