The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Friday announced individuals and bodies were causing Naira fall.

The chief said the actions were hurting the country’s monetary policy by instigating a run on the value of the naira.

Bawa disclosed the commission has intelligence linking persons and organizations to the hoarding of foreign currencies, especially U.S. dollars.

He identified Kano, Lagos, Port Harcourt, Enugu and Calabar as states under watch, disclosing a major offensive against the speculators is under way.
