EFCC Arrests POS Agents For Illegal Sale of New Naira Notes in Kwara

In an operation conducted by the Ilorin Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), three individuals have been apprehended for their alleged involvement in the unlawful sale of new naira notes. The suspects, identified as Sallah Asmau Wuraola, Owoduni Abdullahi Isa (a.k.a Bolaji), and Shuaibu Rukayat, were taken into custody in Ilorin South Local Government Area of Kwara state.

Wuraola and Isa, both working as Point of Sale (PoS) cashiers, were reportedly selling new naira notes of different denominations to customers for commercial purposes without proper authorization. Alongside them, Rukayat, a nurse, was also implicated in the illegal activity.

The arrests were made following credible intelligence received by the EFCC, which had uncovered the illicit operation taking place at event centres, nightclubs, hotels, and parties.

During the operation, Wuraola and Rukayat were found in possession of N1,220,000, while Isa was apprehended with N150,000.

The EFCC has stated that the suspects will soon face charges in court for their illicit activities.
