The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has threatened to arrest Nigerians who are keeping their dollars and other foreign currency.
This was made known to the public by the Chairman of the anti-graft agency, Abdulrasheed Bawa on Friday, August 5.
In a meeting with representatives of Bureau De Change operators in Abuja, the Antigraft agency chairman said they would not hesitate to arrest anyone who found guilty of the offence.
“The Commission has intelligence linking some persons and organisations to hoarding foreign currencies, especially the United States dollars, in key commercial cities of Kano, Lagos, Port Harcourt, Enugu and Calabar.
We warn those involved to desist or risk arrest as a major offensive against the speculators is underway,” he said.
