Once Emefiele satisfies the requirements for his release from Kuje Correctional Center,
Officials have announced that Godwin Emefiele, the embattled former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), has been released from the Kuje Medium Custodial Centre.

Adamu Dazu, the Public Relations Officer (PRO) for the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS) Command in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), affirmed that Emefiele will celebrate the holiday outside the jail after his bail requirements were met.

Additionally, the former CBN governor was granted access to the Kuje Correctional Center last Friday, according to Abubakar Umar, the Service's national spokesman.

"He (Emefiele) has fulfilled his bail conditions and has since been released," Umar told The Guardian yesterday. Remember that Emefiele was granted N300 million in bail by Justice Hamza Muazu of the FCT High Court in Abuja.

He was also required by the court to show two sureties in the same amount. The sureties' possession of titles and certificates of occupancy for properties located in Abuja's Maitama District was one of the requirements.

The judge therefore mandated that Emefiele stay inside the Abuja Municipal Area Council and that he deposit all of his travel documents with the court registrar. In addition, he mandated that he remain in custody at Kuje Correctional Center until the conditions of his bail were met.

The judge also overruled the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission's (EFCC) objection to Emefiele's bail request, rejecting the anti-graft agency's argument that the former CBN governor posed a flight risk and might post bail, endangering the nation's security or investigation.

Emefiele is on trial for six counts related to N1.2 billion worth of procurement fraud.
