‘Are they bankers or bank managers?’ – Susan Peters reacts to arrest of syndicates selling new naira notes
Susan Peters, a Nollywood actress, has reacted to the news that the Department of State Services has arrested an unspecified number of people involved in the sale of new naira notes.
Susan Peters expressed concern about the audacity of selling new notes that are not yet fully in circulation.
The DSS accused some commercial bank officials of assisting the crime in a statement issued by its spokesman, Peter Afunanya.
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.”
Reacting to this unpleasant news, Susan Peters took to her verified Instagram page to demand that the DSS make the identity of the crime perpetrators known.
