Deputy governor of the Economic Policy Directorate of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Kingsley Obiora, has been detained by officials of the Department of State Services (DSS).

His detention has thrown the CBN into a state of anxiety as many staff of the apex bank are confused.

A security source confirmed Obiora’s detention, according to The Nation.

While confirming the arrest, the source also confirmed he is not the only CBN official with the DSS but he refused to disclose the identities of the others.

It is being widely reported that Kingsley Obiora is in the DSS detention at the behest of the Special Investigations Panel set up by President Bola Tinubu, to investigate the tenure of the suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Mr Godwin Emefiele.

It was alleged that the Jim Obaze-led Special Investigations Panel “is mounting pressure on Obiora to stand as a witness against the suspended bank chief.
