Police arrest 5 with 3 000 fake US Dollars

03 January 2013, 14:04

Nasarawa -  The Police Command in Nasarawa State on Wednesday said it arrested five men with more than 3 000 fake US Dollars and materials used for currency counterfeiting.

This is contained in a statement signed by the state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Michael Adah, in Lafia. The police detectives attached to Access Bank PLC., in Lafia on Dec. 28, arrested one Theophilus Ogu, who presented a fake 100 dollar for exchange.

Adah said that following investigation, four others were arrested with fake 3 000 dollars. He said the police also discovered from the hideout, mercury and other materials used in the production of the fake currencies.

He said the suspects would be charged to court as soon as investigation is concluded.

He, however, said that crime rate in the state during Christmas and New year festivity was low, attributing the development to security measures put in place by the command. He urged members of the public to further support the police to effectively tackle criminal activities in the state.
