The Federal Capital Territory High Court has admitted the embattled former Central Bank Governor, Godwin Emefiele, to bail.

The court ordered that he should be released to his counsel and must be produced in court when needed.

The presiding judge, Justice Adeniyi, also ordered him to deposit all his travel documents with the court’s registrar.

He held that there should be an end to a prolonged detention.

After being in the custody of the Federal Government security agencies for over 150 days, Emefiele was brought to court in compliance with Justice Olukayode Adeniyi’s order.

On Wednesday, the former CBN Governor arrived at the court around 12:30, escorted by a retinue of EFCC operatives providing security around him.
