The Department of State Services has said the suspended governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, is now in its custody.
According to reports, Emefiele was arrested in Lagos and flown to the Federal Capital Territory for questioning.
The President, Bola Tinubu, had on Friday announced the suspension of Emefiele, citing an investigation and reforms in the financial sector.
Emefiele was directed to immediately hand over the affairs of his office to the Deputy Governor (Operations Directorate) pending the conclusion of the investigation and the reforms.
This was followed by speculation that the suspended CBN governor had been arrested by the DSS, a claim the service denied.
