He disclosed that the suspects were arrested with various types of ink used in producing the fake notes.

One of the suspects, Mohammed Yakubu, told newsmen that, “I joined this illegal business in 2015. I was arrested in 2019 with fake N1bn naira notes. I spent one month in prison and was released.

“This time around, it was one of my friends from Kogi State that sent me a sample of the fake notes to see if they matched the real notes and in the process I was arrested in Lafia.”

The suspect, who pleaded for mercy, said that his colleagues were spread in all parts of the country.
