The 2023 Presidential candidate of the African Action Congress and Human Rights Activist, Omoyele Sowore on Saturday, alleged that the Department of States Services, cannot probe the embattled suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele.
Sowore who claimed while reacting to the plan by the Federal Government to charge the suspended CBN Governor on a two-count charge of illegal processions of firearm and ammunition before the Federal High Court in Lagos, claimed that Emefiele is not being held for the crimes he committed, noting that if he was to be probed for the crimes he allegedly committed, the Former President Buhari and his entire family, ministers, senators, governors, DSS officials, many chieftains of the All Progressives Congress and even civil society will be affected.
The Convener of ‘Revolution Now’ revealed that the charges against Emefiele were just a bid to buy time from the people he alleged the DSS to be protecting.
He wrote: “For those who may not be familiar with the modus of the @OfficialDSSNG, holding @GodwinIEmefiele had nothing to do with the gravity of his high crimes, the game is to hold him on behalf of those in power.
“If @GodwinIEmefiele was to be prosecuted for his real financial crimes, economic sabotage, money laundering and terrorism financing involvement, FX round tripping etc… he would take down with him @MBuhari, and his entire family, in-laws, members of his inner circle, lots of @OfficialAPCNg leaders, state governors, Senators, media practitioners, military and police top brass and even people in @OfficialDSSNG, @officialEFCC as well as civil society.”
He however alleged that part of the strategy deployed by the DSS was to negotiate with Emefiele before his release from detention.
“A lot would come crashing down. Right now, negotiations are ongoing, this is just the “holding charge” before they let him go!”, he claimed.
