On Wednesday, a Joint Task Force made up of the Nigeria Police Force, the Nigeria Customs Service, and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Enugu Zonal Command, arrested 115 (one hundred and fifteen) people who were allegedly involved in currency racketeering in Enugu State.

The suspects, 113 men and 2 women, were apprehended during a sting operation at Owerri Road, Ogui, Enugu State, after the task force received trustworthy information about specific bureau de change operators, currency speculators, and street vendors operating illegal foreign exchange markets in that area.
