The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, on Thursday, said that fake dollars were in circulation ahead of the presidential and National Assembly elections scheduled for Saturday.
In a statement issued by the agency, EFCC stated that the warning followed intelligence gathered in the build-up to the elections.
“The intelligence indicates that the Dollar notes have features of genuineness, but forensic analysis by the Commission reveals otherwise.
“We, therefore, warn the BDC operators to be cautious in their transactions from now till the end of the elections,” said the statement signed by the Acting Chairman of the Commission, Ibrahim Magu.
