Susan Peters, a star of Nollywood, responded to reports that the Department of State Services had detained an unspecified number of people associated with the sale of new naira notes.
Susan Peters expressed her concern over the chutzpah of selling the new notes, which are not yet widely used.
A statement from the DSS’s spokesperson, Peter Afunanya, accused several commercial bank employees of supporting the crime.
The statement was titled, ‘DSS intercepted syndicates selling new currency notes, bank official implicated’.
It reads, “The Department of State Services hereby informs the public that it has intercepted some members of organised syndicates involved in the sale of the redesigned new naira notes. In the course of its operations, in this regard in parts of the country, it was also established that some commercial bank officials are aiding the economic malfeasance.
“Consequently, the Service warns the currency racketeers to desist from this ignoble act. Appropriate regulatory authorities are, in this same vein, urged to step up monitoring and supervisory activities to expeditiously address the emerging trend.
“It should be noted that the Service has ordered its Commands and Formations to further ensure that all persons and groups engaged in the illegal sale of the new naira notes are identified. Therefore, anyone with useful information relating to this is encouraged to pass the same to the relevant authorities.”
Susan Peters demanded that the DSS reveal the identities of the crime perpetrators on her verified Instagram page in response to this unsettling news.
