The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has refuted several online reports, which alleged that about N 900 million (Nine Hundred Million Naira) of mutilated naira notes, being subject of prosecution at the Federal High Court, Ibadan, and kept in several boxes in its custody has turned to paper.

 

Fresh Angle International can report that the anti-graft agency in a statement released Monday October 7, via its verified twitter handle, described the reports as, “very mischievous and a gross misrepresentation of facts of the matter”.

 

It enjoined members of the public to, “ignore such disinformation, as it is only being spread to cause harm, unnecessary sensationalism and create doubt in the minds of citizens”.

 

The statement added: “The media is hereby advised to always seek clarifications on information before spreading fake news”.
