The battle for freedom has begun for the suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele.

He was arrested by DSS on Friday.

The arrest was reported shortly after President Bola Tinubu suspended Emefiele.

According to the president, Emefiele was suspended due to the ongoing investigation of his office and the planned reforms in the financial sector of the economy.
