ICPC bursts popular commercial bank, discovers N258m new notes hidden in vault, makes arrests
The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission made a new arrest, as the scarcity of the new naira notes persists.
The ICPC, in a statement, disclosed that its operatives found the sum of N258 million stashed in the vault at the head office of Sterling Bank in Abuja.
This finding came as a result of one of the operations the Commission carried out to ensure that commercial banks and other interest groups did not disregard the apex bank’s direction says a statement by ICPC spokesperson, Mrs. Azuka Ogugua.
