The Department of State Services (DSS) has disclosed that it has intercepted some syndicates in parts of the country for selling the newly redesigned naira notes.
This was contained in a statement issued by the agency’s spokesperson, Dr Peter Afunanya, on Monday.
He said the syndicates were intercepted by operatives of the service during an operation.
“Investigation has also shown that some Commercial Bank officials were 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 the emerging trends,” he said.
