Footage currently making the rounds of social media has revealed damaged Naira notes starched in sacks allegedly found in Wadata Police Barracks, Benue State.
A voice in the video can be heard saying, “Live oh, Wadata, EFCC discover money. See money. See where dem hide am. Money don spoil, make una see am. See money. Police Barracks, Wadata. Politicians, una no go kill us.”
Meanwhile, the Nigerian Police Command in Benue State has debunked a video.
But the Command in a statement issued in Makurdi by its Public Relations Officer, Superintendent, SP, Catherine Anene described the video as a ‘misinformation’.
It however promised to conduct a thorough investigation into the matter.
Part of the statement read, “on December 13, 2022 at about 12 noon information was received at A Police Division Makurdi, that hidden Naira notes were recovered from Police Barracks Wadata.
“Police detectives sent on investigation to the scene recovered wasted papers in a shop close to Wadata Police Barracks, Makurdi.
“The owner of the shop, Mr. Isah Suleiman was invited for questioning and he tendered a licence issued to him by Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, for waste management.
