According to a report submitted to President Bola Tinubu by his Special Investigator, Jim Obaze, the former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, has been accused of illegally depositing billions of naira in 593 bank accounts in the United States, United Kingdom, and China.

The report further states that Emefiele opened these bank accounts without the proper approval from the CBN’s Board of Directors and Investment Committee.

Obaze’s report reveals that Emefiele deposited a total of 543, 482,213 in fixed deposits in UK banks alone, all without proper authorization.

The report reads partly: “The former governor of the CBN invested Nigeria’s money without authorisation in 593 foreign accounts in the United States, China and the United Kingdom while he was in charge.

“All the accounts where the billions were lodged have all been traced by the investigator, In the UK alone, Emefiele kept £543,482, 213 in fixed deposits without authorization by the CBN board and the Investment Committee of the bank.”

The former CBN governor is currently in Kuje prison after he was arraigned by the Nigerian Government for alleged N1.2 billion procurement fraud.

The High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, had granted him bail in the sum of N300m but he had failed to perfect it.
