The Police in Kebbi paraded a suspected counterfeiter Bashiru Sani before reporters on Friday for being in possession of N316,000 fake naira notes.

Mr Sani hails from Helende village in Argungu Local Government Area of Kebbi State, said Commissioner of Police Ahmed Magaji-Kontagora.

Mr Magaji-Kontagora told journalists in Birnin Kebbi that the fake money was in N1,000 denomination.

“In the course of investigation, the principal suspect, one Samaila Umar (25) of Argungu Local Government Area, who printed the counterfeit currency via computer desktop was also arrested,” he said.

The police commissioner said the duo would be prosecuted.

He added that police also arrested Ahmed Ibrahim of Kasuwar Gari area of Sakaba Local Government Area for being in possession of criminal charm and rape.

Mr Magaji-Kontagora said the girl got pregnant and that the case was still being investigated before Mr Ibrahim would be arraigned.
