Mathew Burkaa, SAN, the lawyer representing Emefiele, requested bail during Friday’s sessions, but Rotimi Oyedepo, the federal government’s lawyer, objected to the former CBN governor being released .
According to Justice Hamza Muazu, the presiding judge, a court decision could not be made given the abundance of authority invoked by both parties.
The judge said he needed some time to review the evidence provided by Emefiele to support his bail application as well as research the relevant authorities.
The court said the primary trial would begin on November 28. Another court granted Emefiele bail last week after he successfully challenged his five-month incarceration.
President Bola Tinubu suspended Emefiele on June 9 and detained him the next day. Emefiele has not made any public comments on the matter.
