Men of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), have arrested the principal suspect in an attempt by a syndicate to push fake $4.7 million (about N2.7 billion) into circulation in the country.


The NDLEA spokesman, Mr. Femi Babafemi, disclosed this in a statement released in Abuja on Sunday.

He said in the early hours of Friday, February 18, the operatives intercepted a consignment sent from Lagos to Abuja at Abaji area of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).


According to him, “controlled delivery of the parceled counterfeit U.S. dollars, totaling $4,760,000.00, led to the arrest of 42-year old Abdulmumini Maikasuwa.”

The seizure, Babafemi added, followed intelligence received by the FCT Command of the agency, detailing the movement of the cash.

Chairman of the agency, retired Brigadier-General Buba Marwa, has directed that both the cash and the suspect, still in NDLEA custody, be transferred to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for further investigation, he stated.
