Date: 2024-02-19

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ilorin Zonal Command, has arrested the trio of Sallah Asmau Wuraola, Owoduni Abdullahi Isa (a.k.a Bolaji) who are Point of Sale (PoS) cashiers and one Shuaibu Rukayat, a nurse from Ilorin South Local Government Area of Kwara State, for allegedly selling new naira notes of different denominations to customers for commercial purposes.

This announcement contained in a statement signed by Dele Oyewale, Head, Media & Publicity, EFCC and made available to newsmen in Ilorin Sunday night.

The arrest of the suspects followed credible intelligence on elements selling new naira notes to people at event centers, night clubs, hotels and parties without due authorisation.

Wuraola and Rukayat were caught with the sum of N1,220,000 (One Million, Two hundred and Twenty Thousand Naira Only) while Isa was arrested with the sum of N150,000 (One Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira Only).

The suspects would soon be charged to court.
