Police Discover N22m Fake Naira Notes In Gombe

During a stop and search operation in Gombe, the Nigerian Police recovered 22 million worth of fake Naira notes.
The Commissioner of Police, Mr. Shina Olukolu while parading the suspects on Friday, disclosed to newsmen that the Federal Special Anti-robbery Squad (FSARS), intercepted syndicates of fake currency dealers during a stop and search operation around Billiri area of Gombe state.
“As I have always said, crime does not pay. These suspects have been dealing in fake currency for so long but the long arm of the law has caught up with them today.
“I want to reiterate the resolve and commitment of the entire officers and men of the Command that we will stop at nothing to eradicate crime and criminalities in the state” Mr. Shina stated.
Reacting to the allegation, one of the suspects, Sani Ibrahim confessed to journalists that he became a dealer of fake naira notes to meet his needs. “It’s not my wish to produce fake Naira notes. One Alhaji brought me into this line of illegal business, last year when the economy became tough for me.
“We operate in Gombe and Nasarawa states because that’s where we have people who trade our fake currency” Sani added. Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, Mr. Shina Olukolu has warned politicians in the state to shun political violence as the police will not tolerate any form of malpractice in the re-scheduled All Progressive Congress (APC) ward elections which holds on Saturday in the state.
