Jul 19, 2023 | Politics | 0 comments

According to the Directorate of State Services (DSS), Godwin Emefiele, a lawyer for the Central Bank of Nigeria’s (CBN) suspended governor1, also represents the banned Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

The secret police said in a tweet posted on their account on Tuesday, July 18, that Maxwell Okpara, Emefiele’s attorney, was a member of the banned organization. In response to the imprisonment of Emefiele, Okpara and a few attorneys demanded that DSS Director-General Yusuf Bichi be held accountable.

On the other hand, the DSS referred to Okpara as a “Biafran Republic agitator,” claiming that the attorney needed to be “fully schooled” on legal issues in light of Emefiele’s detention.
