We didn’t invade CBN, lay siege to Emefiele’s office — DSS

The Department of State Service (DSS) on Monday evening refuted media reports claiming that its operatives invaded CBN’s headquarters and cordoned the office of the Governor of CBN, Godwin Emefiele.


Said the DSS in the statement issued by the Public Relations Officer, Dr Peter Afunanya: “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.”


Meanwhile, CBN has confirmed that Emefiele resumes duty today after his annual leave.


CBN Director, Corporate Communications, Osita Nwanisobi, said in a statement: “The Governor, Central Bank of Nigeria, Mr. Godwin Emefiele, has resumed duty after his annual vacation abroad. Mr. Emefiele, who proceeded on leave in December 2022, resumed work today, Monday, January 16, 2023.


“The 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.


“While thanking the public for keeping faith with the Bank, we urge Nigerians to continue to support the policies of the Bank aimed at ensuring a stable financial system and the Nigerian economy in general.”
