Emefiele, facing a two-count charge filed by the Federal Ministry of Justice, pleaded “not guilty” to the accusations. In response to the Federal Government’s claim that Emefiele was a flight risk, the judge dismissed the notion, citing a lack of substantial evidence to support the government’s position.
