After Justice Oweibo’s ruling, the NCS official already stationed their vehicle at the court’s premises to drive Emefiele to prison, where he was expected to stay until his bail conditions were met.

But the men of the secret police parked their vehicles at the entrance of the court premises with a strong move to stop the NCS operatives from going to the correctional centre with the suspended CBN governor.
