The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has raised an alarm over the circulation of fake dollar notes ahead of Saturday’s Presidential and National Assembly elections.

In a statement personally signed by the Acting Chairman of the EFCC, Mr Ibrahim Magu, the agency stated that the warning follows intelligence gathered in the build up to the elections.

The intelligence indicates that the Dollar notes have features of genuineness , but forensic analysis by the Commission reveals otherwise.

“We therefore warn the Bureaux De Change operators to be cautious in their transactions from now till the end of the elections,” the commission said.
