The Department of State Services on Monday said its officers have arrested an undisclosed number of persons involved in the sale of the new naira notes.
The DSS, in a statement on Monday by its spokesman, Peter Afunanya, accused some commercial bank officials of aiding the crime. The statement was titled, ‘DSS intercepted syndicates selling new currency notes, bank official implicated’.
Punch newspaper reports that the DSS has ordered its Commands and Formations to further ensure that all persons and groups engaged in the illegal sale of the notes are identified.
The command called on anyone with useful information relating to naira selling to the relevant authorities.
