BY:LUCKY KENEDY OSE

Mohammed Abubakar, Director of Public Prosecutions of the Federal Ministry of Justice has revealed why GODWIN Emefiele, the controversially suspended governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), and his co-defendant were not in court on Wednesday.Additionally absent from court proceedings were the attorneys for the parties involved.According to Gistlover the federal government charged the suspects with 20 counts totaling N6.9 billion for allegedly breaking procurement laws and contract inflation.

However, the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory’s Wednesday arraignment date was not listed on the cause list for the court.
Likewise, neither Emefiele nor his co-defendant Saadat Yaro were present in court, and there was no unusual security presence seen in the area of the courthouse.The scheduled arraignment for Emefiele and Ramallan-Yaro was postponed twice previously.
According to reports, Emefiele chose to cooperate with the federal government in exchange for a dismissal of the charges leveled against him.
According to sources aware of the development, Saadat Yaro and Emefiele have decided to settle with the government through a plea agreement.
The DPP, however, explained to Premium Times on Thursday in Abuja that Emefiele was not arraigned on Wednesday due to security issues near the court.
