The CBN governor revealed the antics of these persons while interacting with reporters after the September Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) meeting of the bank.

He said, “It really beats my imagination that Nigerians carry on with this kind of practice that tends to support illegal activities of people who are involved in graft and corrupt practices.

“What do they do: instead of collecting naira as bribe, you tell the person to exchange it into dollar so that you can have small packet of dollars in your pocket.”

The CBN governor also said criminals were accessing dollars from the Bureau De Change operators to import arms.
