Goni said, “Preliminary investigation by our personnel revealed that the notes have the same serial number. Also, some of the stakeholders from bureau de change, said they had noticed the fake currency in circulation some months ago. We have put our men and other sister agencies on notice of the trend.
“We believe they are trying to bring in this fake currency to destabilise the economy of the state and defraud unsuspected persons.
