The Bankers Committee has warned Nigerians not to spray Naira otherwise would be sent to jail. It stated also that those mishandling the Naira will not be spared. It issued this warning during its meeting in Lagos, adding that the mobile courts would be deployed throughout the country to try those mishandling the currency.
Spokesman of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Isaac Okorafor said the police and the Ministry of Justice would be involved in the operation.
“If a celebrant is dancing and you spray him/her, you may go to jail from the party venue because the law enforcement agents will be there, waiting to arrest you.
“It is the duty of law enforcement agencies to catch offenders and take them to court. Our collaboration with the police will intensify as we move to implement the mobile court for offenders.”
“If you want to give, put the money in an envelop, and give it the celebrant. Let’s know that anybody hawking and writing on the naira will face six months in jail or N50,000 or both.”
