Spread the news

A CBN employee, Mr Monday Osazuwa on Friday, told an Ikeja Special Offences Court how the former CBN governor, Godwin Emefiele on different occasions, directed him to collect $3m cash in tranches.

Osasuwa, while being led in evidence by the EFCC counsel, Mr Rotimi Oyedepo (SAN) said he was a dispatch rider in Zenith Bank in 2001 before he joined the CBN in 2014. Osasuwa said he joined the apex bank as a senior supervisor in 2014.

He said Emefiele was the Managing Director of Zenith Bank Plc while he was working as a dispatch rider in the bank.

I recall that in 2020 when he was outside Lagos, he called me that he would give me a number that a man had something I should collect from him and that the man would give me the number of another person.

When I got to the man’s office, I was given an envelope. I counted the money and the man said I should give it to my boss,” he said.
