Nigeria’s Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested a man for possession of fake dollar bills.
The suspect, Samson Oyuedon is likely to face prosecution over possession of fake bills amounting to $400,000.
He was arrested at the town of Masaka in the north central Nasarawa State. Samson is seen seated behind the bundles of $100 in photos shared by the EFCC.
In March this year, the EFCC arrested a man who attempted to travel with $375,000 cash to the United Arab Emirates. Suspect Adamu Rabiu Mohammed was placed under investigations.
They have also busted over $600,000 in a Lagos market and another $43 million cash in a Lagos apartment. The latter known as the ‘Ikoyi cash’ led to the dismissal of the country’s spy chief by President Muhammadu Buhari after a probe.
