FG Accuses Suspended Governor of CBN ,Sanusi of Funding Terrorism



sanusi-lamido newA new twist emerged Monday in the travails of suspended Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria ,Sanusi Lamido Sanusi as it was revealed that the Federal Government is accusing him of funding terrorism.
Reports said Sanusi lawyer, Mr. Kola Awodein who revealed this twist in the tale however denied the allegation against his cient,Sanusi.
Sanusi approached the Federal High Court in Lagos seeking to restrain the State Security Service,SSS as well as the police from arresting him after he was suspended .
The CBN Governor was attending an official function in Niamey,Niger when his suspension was announced. His passport has been seized upon his return to the country.
His lawyer told the court Monday,“The seizure of the applicant’s international passport by the third respondent, is a derogation of his freedom of movement.
“The first to third respondents give conflicting reasons as to the complaint made against the applicant: This conflict goes to show that they acted without due process of the law.
“The allegations against the applicant as to funding of terrorism, is an afterthought by the respondent, which is not backed by facts, as there is no reasonable suspicion that the applicant committed any crime.
“The law clearly defines how such duties should be performed, and so, I invite your lordship to hold that the applicant has a cause of action against the respondent,” Sanusi’s lawyer said.
Clearly, this revelation will attract more interest to Sanusi’s suit against the Federal Government
