Femi Falana, a human rights lawyer, has said the series of allegations levelled against the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, was undemocratic.
One of such allegations according to Falana who was a guest on a Channels TV programme on Monday was terrorism financing.
He noted that such action could only happen in a ‘banana republic’.
“I can say without any fear that Mr Godwin Emefiele is not in Nigeria, but he has been quietly declared wanted by state Security Services.
“This can only happen in a Banana republic where the CBN Governor would be accused of a grave offence, which is terrorism financing,” he said.
Recall that the CBN governor returned to the country after he proceeded on leave in December.
He (Emefiele) also faces allegations of diversion of revenue, agricultural loans and fraudulent practices in Forex transactions and had failed to show up at the National Assembly to explain the reason behind the naira redesign and cash withdrawal limits.
