A top official of Ikoyi Prison have been arrested by the Operatives of Department of State Services on the premises of Federal High Court in Lagos State.
The Ikoyi prison official who was rough-handled and shuffled into the DSS vehicle was later released by the secret service operatives.
However, the arrest may be connected with the tussle for who keeps custody of Godwin Emefiele the suspended Central Bank of Nigeria Governor.
The suspended CBN governor was arraigned by the Federal Ministry of Justice for illegal possession of firearms and ammunition but was granted bail in the sum of N20m with one surety, following his “not guilty” plea.
As the defendant’s lawyers were trying to perfect his bail conditions, a mild drama played out within the court premises between DSS operatives who are fully hooded and NCS over who will take custody of the embattled CBN boss.
