Bank officials exposed for hiding new naira behind old notes in storage (Watch video)

A video making the rounds online shows employees of an unknown bank being exposed for hiding the new naira notes.

It was gathered that a compliance team visited the bank in line with the Central Bank’s directive for banks to load ATMs with new naira notes.

On reaching the bank, they realised that old currency was till being put in the ATM, so they moved to the storage and saw new currency being hidden.

The bank officials used old currency to hide the new ones on the shelf and make it look like those are the ones they have.

In a video circulating online, the team instructed a man working at the bank to bring out the former notes and it led to a discovery of the newer ones.

They were subsequently asked to load the new money inside their ATM to ease up the challenge of getting cash.

Meanwhile, Nollywood actress, Oluwadarasimi Omoseyin, popularly known as Simisola Gold, was recently arrested by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, (ICP) for allegedly offering new naira notes for sale on social media.

ICPC’s spokesperson, Azuka Ogugua announced the Abuja-based influencer’s arrest on Wednesday, 1st of February.

She said intelligence gathered by the anti-graft agency led operatives to seek out and promptly pick up the suspect.

Mrs. Ogugua said; “Oluwadarasimi Emma, a social media ‘serial entrepreneur’ who deals in skincare, sales of fuel, facilitation of foreign travels through visa acquisitions, and other businesses, seized the opportunity of the scarcity of the new naira notes to openly market the new notes.

It is believed she is in collusion with key elements in the financial services sector diverting the newly released notes away from banking halls and payment channels into a ‘black market.’

“Oluwadarasimi is currently in ICPC detention and is helping the Commission with its findings on the criminal trading of the naira and the attendant scarcity and negative economic outcomes being caused by the action.

“The action is in furtherance of the collaboration between CBN, ICPC and EFCC in implementing the new cashless policy and naira redesign.”
