The Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps, Kebbi State Command, has apprehended two suspects with N500 and N1000 fake currency notes totalling N300,000.

The suspects, Abubakar Shagari from Sokoto State and Shehu Atiku Barama from Gwandu Local Government of Kebbi State were nabbed along the Sani Abacha Bye-pass, Birnin-Kebbi on Wednesday with the fake notes.

Parading them, the State Commandant of NSCDC, Mr Sammani Ringim, said some corps intelligence officers acting on information from the public, arrested the suspects in their hideouts along the bye pass.

According to him, the suspects specialised in printing and spending counterfeit Naira notes in the state.

He said that the suspects would be charged to court for prosecution after the completion of their investigation.

Addressing officers of the command during a sensitisation workshop ahead of the general election, Ringim urged them to be professional and responsible in their duties before, during and after the elections.
