Operatives of the Kano Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have arrested 11 suspected currency racketeers for their alleged involvement in the sales of new naira notes.

The syndicate, according to a statement by the EFCC spokesman, Dele Oyewale, allegedly specialised in selling naira notes.

He said five members of the syndicate were arrested with new naira notes being sold to the public, adding that six bankers who were alleged to be selling the naira notes to the criminals on commission were also arrested.
