It was later she realised that they were all fake. As punishment, the lady said her madam made her pay for it.
The money is being deducted from her salary. When asked why she was burning them, the lady said she didn't want them to be circulated by unsuspecting folks.
According to the lady, it is remaining N70k for her to balance up her madam.

Video of fake new N1k notes hit the net
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a video of fake new N1k notes had hit the internet.
A mobile money and bank agent in a video exposed this, claiming that a customer completed a bank transaction through his wife's Point of Sale (PoS) using a false replica of the new N1,000.
He went ahead in the video to show the difference between the fake and original redesigned N1,000 note.
According to him, the original note has a gold seal at the bottom of the right-hand side of the note, and the seal cannot be erased when scratched.
