The Department of State Services has intercepted some members of an organized syndicate peddling the new Naira notes in various parts of the country (DSS).

The DSS asserted in a statement on Monday that numerous commercial bank workers were involved in the crime despite withholding the suspects’ identities and locations.

Dr. Peter Afunanya, the DSS’s public relations officer, in statement warned that the Service will go after those involved for the misconduct.

The statement read, “The Department of State Services (DSS) hereby informs the public that it has intercepted some members of organised syndicates involved in the sale of the newly redesigned naira notes. 

“In the course of its operations, in this regard in parts of the country, it was also established that some Commercial Bank officials are aiding the economic malfeasance. 

“Consequently, the Service warns the currency racketeers to desist from this ignoble act. Appropriate regulatory authorities are, in this same vein, urged to step up monitoring and supervisory activities to expeditiously address emerging trends.

“It should be noted that the Service has ordered its Commands and Formations to further ensure that all persons and groups engaged in the illegal sale of the notes are identified. Therefore, anyone with useful information relating to this is encouraged to pass the same to the relevant authorities”.
