The operatives of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) have arrested a POS Agent, Obasi, alongside a banker at its Port Harcourt Zonal Command.

The banker, Soberechukwu Ewa, was allegedly selling new naira notes to a Point of Sales (POS) cashier, Azubuike M. Obasi.

According to a press release by the EFCC spokesman, Dele Oyewale on Friday, the suspects were arrested on Friday at Ecobank, Rumuobiakani and Maddox Night club, new Government Reservation Area (GRA), Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

Oyewale said a preliminary investigation showed that the banker allegedly specialised in selling new naira notes of different denominations to POS cashiers for commercial purposes.

Obasi on the other hand was caught engaging in currency racketeering.

“He was arrested while in possession of N554,600.00 (five hundred and fifty-four thousand, six hundred naira). The two suspects would soon be charged to court,” the spokesman said.
