The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Thursday revealed that it has placed more conservatives working under its watch on cached naira notes.
Anti-graft agency chief Abdul Rashid Bawa announced this while answering questions from journalists after meeting President Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential villa in Abuja.
DAILY POST reports that as a complement to the move by the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN to redesign some naira notes, EFCC hinted last week that around three rulers who allegedly stashed money in their homes in Abuja were under surveillance.
However, Bawa said on Thursday that more incumbent governors have been placed under surveillance for illegally stashing money in their various homes.
The head of the Economic and Financial Crimes Committee was unable to provide the names of the suspected hiders.
He praised the new naira redesign project, describing it as an important operation in combating financial crimes and other forms of corruption in the country.
