"The COVID-19 Vaccine We Are Taking In Nigeria Are Not Bill Gates Vaccines And We Are Not Being Used As Guinea Pigs" - FFK



Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has said that the COVID-19 vaccines being taken in Nigeria are not ''Bill Gates vaccines'' and the vaccines have been tested and trusted, IgbereTV reports


He also stated that Nigerians are not being used as ''Guinea pigs.''


He said this following the backlash he received after taking jabs of the vaccines on Tuesday March 30, months after he described same as evil and Gates Killer vaccines. FFK was hugely criticized on social media last night after he shared photos of himself taking the Oxford/AtsraZeneca vaccines.


Reacting to the backlash on his Twitter handle this morning, FFK said that the vaccine he took was from the World Health Organization and not the one from Bill Gates. He said he will never take any vaccine linked to Mr. Gates.




His tweets read;

''The Covid vaccines we are taking in Nigeria are not Bill Gates' vaccines and neither are we being used as Guinea pigs. These ones are tried & tested, have already been approved & have been administered successfully throughout the world. This is the Oxford Azrazeneca brand.


There is a world of difference between what we are being given in Nigeria & the exploratory vaccines that @WHO had wanted to test Africans with which we spoke against & resisted last year.Most importantly Bill Gates& his foundation have no connection with Oxford Azrazeneca.


I would not touch anything Bill Gates with a barge pole for obvious reasons. Mark it.''

Armed Robbers Attack A Bank In Aniocha Delta, Kill 3 People (Graphic Pics)


- Daredevil armed robbers on Tuesday afternoon invaded a new generation bank in Aniocha North Local Government Area of Delta state and carted away some amounts of money yet to be ascertained.

- The robbers were armed to the teeth, our correspondent gathered.

- They unleashed mayhem on the bank, destroying properties as workers and customers scampered to safety.


Watch Video:



More facts concerning Tuesday's attack on the Bank at Issele-Uku branch, headquarters of Aniocha North Local Government Area of Delta state by daredevil armed robbers have emerged.


The tension forced workers and customers around to scamper to safety.


SaharaReporters gathered that the bloody operation which lasted over an hour, led to the killing of a resident.


The victim was killed by a stray bullet while some others sustained bullet wounds.


A resident of the community who witnessed the incident and spoke on condition of anonymity, said the armed robbers, who invaded the bank had some of their gang members stationed at different vantage positions in the community while some of them were at the bank.


"The armed robbers came well prepared. It was like an American action movie. The robbers had sophisticated weapons. Sounds of gunshots rented the entire village while the operation was on. There was panic everywhere and the police were nowhere to be found. As they were shooting sporadically, stray bullets hit someone and she died immediately and others had bullet wounds.


"Our hopes were dashed as we were counting on the police station in the town. As this was going on, we heard the the Divisional Police Officer and his men had gone into hiding somewhere else. We heard that the robbers earlier visited the police station and were searching for the DPO and his men but the police who got wind of their presence quickly took cover. The destruction at the bank was massive.


"If I am not mistaken, three years ago, the same bank was attacked and robbed and some millions of naira were stolen. So many people, especially customers were left with serious wounds. When today's robbery incident was going on, so many of us were calling lines made available to the public to reach out to the security outfit code named 'Operation Delta Hawk' that was inaugurated by Governor Ifeanyi Okowa last year, but unfortunately they never showed up till the robbers left the community."


When contacted, the acting Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Bright Edafe, Delta State Police Command, confirmed the robbery incident, saying, "The command is already at the top of the situation. Our men are presently in the bush trailing some of the gang members who ran into the bush. For the now, we don't have the accurate number of casualties."

BREAKING: Nigerian Army, Police Kill 16 IPOB's Eastern Security Network Operatives In Abia


A joint operation of the Nigerian Army and police has led to the death of about 16 operatives of the Eastern Security Network (ESN), a military source told SaharaReporters on Wednesday.


The source said hundreds of security operatives on Tuesday night launched a heavy attack on the camp of ESN in Aba, Abia state, killing about 16 of them and injuring others.


9jaedublog gathered that the operation was in response to a series of attacks against security personnel in the South-East.


Not less than 20 security operatives have been killed in the region by unknown gunmen in the last three months. 


Police stations are also not left out in the assault as three of them have been razed in 2021.


Three policemen were killed in a fresh attack in Ohafia LGA of Abia state on Monday.


The officers were killed while on a ‘stop and search’ operation in Abiriba town.


The gunmen were said to have ambushed them and carted away their rifles not long after they arrived in the town for a routine operation.


The slain police officers were identified as Austin Ugwu, Longinus Ugochukwu, and Ama Ifeanyi.


IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, had in December 2020 launched ESN to protect the people of South-East and South-South regions from terrorists and bandits allegedly trooping in from the North.


Kanu described the outfit as a replica of the Western Nigeria Security Network, also known as Amotekun, earlier launched by the governors of the South-West to curb insecurity in the region.


“The sole aim and objective of this newly formed security outfit known as Eastern Security Network is to halt every criminal activity and terrorist attack on Biafraland,” Kanu had said.


“This outfit, which is a vigilante group like the Amotekun in the South-West and the Miyetti Allah security outfit, will ensure the safety of our forests and farmland which terrorists have converted into slaughter grounds and raping fields.”


He added that the establishment of the security outfit became necessary following what he described as the “failure” of the governors of the South-South and South-East to put in place measures to protect the people in those regions.


SaharaReporters earlier reported that the Nigerian Army had deployed combat helicopters, gun trucks, and soldiers to search some forests in the South-East states where the ESN was suspected to be camping.


Recently, it was learnt that some Nigerian soldiers resigned and joined the ESN, on the grounds that the ESN, being funded by both international and local donors, had better welfare packages for its officers than the military.


“The Kanu ESN boys are not a bunch of rookies and untrained fellows brandishing guns. I personally know five guys from my hometown in Anambra State who left the Nigerian Army to join the ESN. Two of them were formerly serving in Operation Lafiya Dole, Borno State, before they quit.


“We are being reliably informed that there are other soldiers, particularly of the South-East extraction, who will soon leave for other various reasons and they are likely to be recruited into the fold,” a military source told SaharaReporters.


In July 2012, about 356 soldiers in the North-East and other theatres of operation had resigned from the army – some on voluntary retirement, while others cited loss of interest as their reason for disengagement.


The soldiers had written to the former army chief, Lt Gen Tukur Buratai, on July 3, 2020, under Reference NA/COAS/001, quoting the Harmonised Terms and Conditions of Service soldiers/rating/airmen (Revised) 2017.


The approval of the voluntary disengagement of the 356 soldiers was contained in a 17-page circular from Buratai, AHQ DOAA/G1/300/92, signed by Brig Gen T.E. Gagariga for the army chief.


Again, this January, another batch of 127 soldiers resigned from the Nigerian Army and are due to leave by May.


They comprised one Master Warrant Officer, three Warrant Officers, 22 Staff Sergeants, 29 Sergeants, 64 Corporals, seven Lance Corporals, and one Private.

Kwara: Crisis brews over use of Hijab in Christian schools


There may be a commotion, tomorrow, in about 10 Christian secondary schools in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, if the imbroglio surrounding the use of veil (hijab) by Muslim female students, is not amicably resolved.


The 10 schools built by different Christian denominations had experienced grant aiding by the state government, 47 years ago, during the military era of the late David Bamigboye, as the governor.


Kwara State government had set up different committees, the latest being the one headed by the Deputy Governor, Mr. Kayode Alabi, to resolve the crisis.


Besides, it is believed that the matter over hijab had reached the Supreme Court, as church leaders and their Boards of Trustees were said to be praying the court for a return of these schools to their owners.

Shina Ibiyeye Esq, who is the Spokesman for the state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), said the issue of hijab was not raised at any level of the litigations over the battle for the return of the schools to owners.


Ibiyeye, while citing a trite cliche on law, said: “No known court under the sun should grant any request that was not pleaded for by the litigants appearing before it.” He wondered how the issue should be included in any judgment.


He said despite the development, the status quo ante should have been maintained until Supreme Court’s decision was churned out on the issue.


He faulted the government’s stance on the usage of the veil in designated schools.


Already, the state’s CAN said it would resist such a move, saying churches concerned would not let go the heritage of their forebears “at whatever price.”


A popular radio Islamic preacher in Ilorin, Prof. Abubakre Ali-Agan had sued for peace, imploring parties in the crisis to embrace tolerance and peaceful coexistence.


Already, the Baptist Conference and Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) jointly criticised the state government for allegedly taking a wrong decision in approving the wearing of hijab in grant-aided mission schools.


President, Kwara Baptist Conference, Rev. Victor Dada said the government took a wrong decision by its blanket approval of wearing of hijab for female pupils in mission schools.


Chairman, ECWA Ilorin District Church Council, Rev. John Owoeye said: “We demand the return of our schools to us in earnest. We refuse enforcement of hijab on our pupils, knowing full well that our schools are church heritage and we shall use every licit means to protect it. We promise to defend our faith and property with the whole of our strength and might.”

CBN imposes N7 USSD transaction fee on Nigerians



The Central Bank of Nigeria has set new charges payable by customers using USSD services for their financial transactions.


The apex bank said the transaction fees are effective Tuesday, setting a flat rate of N6.98 per transaction.


This was contained in a statement released on Tuesday and signed by the apex bank’s Acting Director, Corporate Communications, Osita Nwanisobi; and Director, Public Affairs, Nigerian Communications Commission, Ikechukwu Adinde.


The announcement was released in a statement titled, ‘Joint Statement By Central Bank Of Nigeria and Nigerian Communications Commission On Pricing Of Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) Services’.


‌The document reads;


Effective March 16, 2021, USSD services for financial transactions conducted at DMBs (Deposit Money Banks) and all CBN-licensed institutions will be charged at a flat fee of N6.98 per transaction. This replaces the current per session billing structure, ensuring a much cheaper average cost for customers to enhance financial inclusion. This approach is transparent and will ensure the amount remains the same, regardless of the number of sessions per transaction.


The new rates come after the meeting held by the banking sector and telecommunications under ALTON on Monday to discuss and resolve the N42 billion debt owed mobile operators by banks.


The federal government had last week asked telecommunication operators to suspend their threatened withdrawal of USSD services over a N42bn debt owed by banks, a move that stood to affect estimated 40 million consumers, who rely on the short codes as opposed to internet services.


The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, had convened a meeting with financial institutions and mobile network operators on Monday.

#EndSARS: Court Orders Central Bank To Unfreeze Accounts



The Central Bank of Nigeria has been ordered to unfreeze the bank accounts of #EndSARS protesters by a Federal High Court in Abuja, the country’s capital.


The Federal High Court in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital Wednesday, ordered the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to unfreeze the accounts of 20 people linked with anti-police brutality protests known as #EndSARS.


In an apparent crackdown on protesters last October, the apex bank placed a ban on 20 young Nigerians’ accounts believed to be promoters of the protest.


In the aftermath of the demonstrations, the CBN said it received an exparte order from a Federal High Court in Abuja to freeze the bank accounts of the 20 persons “for a period of 90 days pending the outcome of investigation and inquiry currently being conducted by the Central Bank of Nigeria.”


According to details of the court order,  the apex bank had requested to freeze the accounts on Oct. 20, 2020, and it was immediately granted by Justice Ahmed Mohammed, an unusually fast-paced process.


Commercial banks like Access Bank, Fidelity Bank, First Bank Nigeria, Guaranty Trust Bank, United Bank of Africa, and Zenith Bank, where the #EndSARS promoters had opened accounts, received the order.


The affected persons were Bolatito Racheal Oduala, Chima David Ibebunjoh, Mary Doose Kpengwa, Saadat Temitope Bibi, Bassey Victor Israel, Wisdom Busaosowo Obi, Nicholas Ikhalea Osazele, Ebere Idibie, Akintomide Lanre Yusuf, Uhuo Ezenwanyi Promise and Mosopefoluwa Odeseye, among others.


Also, Gatefield Nigeria Limited, owners of Gatefield Co, an advocacy group that funded journalists for the media coverage of the protest had its Access Bank account frozen; the group said in a Twitter post last year.


But in his ruling on Wednesday, Justice Ahmed Mohammed said the order followed an agreement reached by parties in the suit to resolve the matter amicably.


While commending counsel to the CBN, Michael Andoaka, and lawyer to the defendants,  Femi Falana, the Judge ruled that “all processes filed in respect of the case are hereby deemed to have been withdrawn.”


He then set aside the November 4, 2020 order and ordered that all the affected persons’ accounts “be immediately defreezed.”


#EndSARS Protest

Regarded as one of the country’s biggest social upheavals in 20 years, many Nigerian youths united with an equal rage spewed against police brutality, particularly the high-handedness of the now-disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad, last October.


The nationwide protests attracted global attention at a time thousands of people were campaigning for an end to police brutality across the world.


The demonstrations came to a crescendo on Oct. 20, 2020, when soldiers deployed by the Nigerian Army opened fire at protesters at Lekki tollgate, Lagos State, Southwest Nigeria, hours after a curfew was imposed in the state by Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of the state in what was believed as an attempt to contain the protest.


Many protesters reportedly died, and others injured during what later became known by some as ‘#LekkiMassacre’. Authorities have insisted that the soldiers fired blank bullets and that nobody died.


Amnesty International put the death toll at 12, but the army and police have denied the killings.

Cryptocurrency: Senate Invites CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele



The Senate has invited the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele to brief its committees on the opportunities and threats of cryptocurrency on the nation’s economy.

The decision of the Senate to invite the CBN governor is sequel to a motion by a Federal Lawmaker Senator Istifanus Gyang during plenary on Thursday, on the CBN’s directive to stop financial institutions from transactions in cryptocurrencies and matters arising from them.


In their contributions; Federal lawmakers called for caution pointing out that while cryptocurrency has its negative sides and it has become the fastest-growing form of transaction all over the world.


They argued that technology has changed the way business is conducted in Nigeria and the country cannot run away from cryptocurrency. What has required some of them to say, is regulation.


The CBN had on February 5, 2021, ordered all banks to close accounts of anyone who transacts in cryptocurrency.


The order was contained in a circular to banks and other financial institutions, signed on Friday by the Director of Banking Supervision, Bello Hassan, and it is expected to take effect immediately.


According to the CBN, dealing in cryptocurrency or facilitating payments for cryptocurrency exchanges is prohibited.


“The Central Bank of Nigeria circular of January 12, 2017, ref FPR/DIR/GEN/CIR/06/010 which cautioned Deposit Money Banks (DMBs), Non-Bank Financial Institutions (NBFIs), other Financial Institutions and members of the public on the risk associated with transactions in cryptocurrency refers,” the statement said.


“Further to earlier regulatory directions on the subject, the bank hereby wishes to remind regulated institutions dealing in cryptocurrencies or facilitating payments for cryptocurrency exchanges is prohibited.


“Accordingly, all DMB’s NBFI’s or OFI’s are directed to identify persons and/or entities transacting in or operating cryptocurrency exchanges within their systems and ensure that such accounts are closed immediately.


“Please, note that breaches of this directive will attract severe regulatory sanctions. This letter is with immediate effect”.


The CBN further noted that the use of cryptocurrencies in Nigeria contravenes existing laws.


The apex bank warned Deposit Money Banks (DMBs) to desist from transacting cryptocurrencies and dealing with entities who do the same.


According to the CBN, cryptocurrencies are “issued by unknown and unregulated entities” and are increasingly being used to conduct ” many illegal activities including money laundering, terrorism financing, purchase of small arms and light weapons, and tax evasion.”


The CBN Governor is to appear before the committees on banking, ICT, Cybercrime, and Capital market.


These committees are to report back to the Senate in two weeks.

FG vows to stop planned #EndSARS protest at Lekki toll gate


The Federal Government on Thursday warned those planning a fresh #EndSARS protest at the Lekki Toll Gate, Lagos on Saturday to desist.


It said it would not allow any further resort to violence in the name of #EndSARS protest.


The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, handed down the warning at a press conference in Abuja.


While admitting that peaceful protests are the constitutional rights of Nigerians, the minister said violent protests are not.


He said the chances that any peaceful protest would be hijacked at this time were very high.


The minister claimed that based on the intelligence at the disposal of the Federal Government, some Nigerian activists have linked up with others outside Nigeria, “including subversive elements,” with a view to destabilising the country, adding that “We cannot and must not allow this to happen.”


Mohammed said, “Any further resort to violence in the name of EndSARS will not be tolerated this time.


“The security agents are ready for any eventuality. A situation in which six soldiers and 37 policemen were murdered in cold blood by hoodlums will not repeat itself.


“The attack, looting and razing of 269 private and public properties will not happen again. The killing of 57 civilians will not be re-enacted.


“We therefore strongly warn those who are planning to re-occupy Lekki Toll Gate on Saturday to desist. We know that many of those who have been loudest on social media in advertising the plan to reconvene in Lagos on Saturday are not even in Nigeria. They are elsewhere around the world fanning the embers of violence and inciting gullible people back home. No one should fall for their antics.


 “No government anywhere will allow a repeat of the kind of destruction, killing and maiming wrought by the hijackers of EndSars protests last year. After all, only one policeman – (plus four others) – was killed in the invasion of the US Capitol in January, yet the FBI has continued

to hunt down and prosecute the perpetrators. No life is more important than the other.”

Pantami: FG Plans To Replace BVN With NIN


By Blessing Olaifa Abuja

The Federal Government has stated arrangements are ongoing to replace the Bank Verification Numbers (BVN) with the National Identity Numbers (NIN).


The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy Dr Isa Pantami, who disclosed this to newsmen shortly after a tour of telecoms operators and NIN licensees in Abuja, said President Muhammadu Buhari has been briefed on the on-going NIN registrations.


Pantami who said the President was happy with the conducts of the exercise so far, added he had also briefed the National Economic Sustainability Committee headed by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on the imperative of replacing BVN with NIN.


Pantami argued that while BVN was only for accounts holders with various banks, the National Identity Numbers are for all Nigerians irrespective of their status.


To ascertain the smooth registration of Nigerians, the Minister visited the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) registration Centre in Gwarinpa, the Zonal Headquarters of MTN, Glo Mobile and Airtel in Maitama as well as a Private operator, OMNL, Nigeria.



Accompanied by the Executive Vice Chairman of NCC, Prof Garba Danbatta; Director-General General of NITDA, Kashifu Inuwa and Chief Executive Officer of NIMC, Engr Aliyu Aziz, the Minister said he was impressed by the strict adherence to COVID-19 protocols at all the registration centres.


Responding to challenges encountered by those with the BVN data trying to upgrade with NIN data, Pantami said:” The challenge is that the BVN records may not be 100 percent the same with NIN but what is most important is that the NIN is the primary identity of each and every citizen, including legal residents.


“BVN is a policy of a bank and has not been established by law, NIN is the only mandatory number and the primary identification of our citizens and every other identification is secondary.


“The NIMC Act 2007 provides that all our citizens must be enrolled and the law gives them 60 days to enroll from the time the law was enacted and a maximum of 180 days and all permanent residents in the country and legal residents that have to stay here for a minimum of 24 months must be enrolled.


“So this is the primary identification of all and all other data bases are supposed to utilize this and not for NIN to utilize the BVN because it is the primary one.


“We discussed with the CBN Governor today on how to ensure that all our citizens with BVN will immediately be provided with the NIN. We are working on that but facilitating the process lies on CBN to make it much easier for our people.”


Asked to clarify government position on the BVN replacement with NIN, Pantami said:” I made a presentation to National Economic Sustainability Committee and I drew the attention of CBN Governor that we need to replace BVN with NIN because the BVN is a bank policy while NIN is a law.


“Because it has been established by law so the strength of the law wherever you go is not the same with a policy of one institution.


“Also, BVN is only applicable to those who have bank accounts but NIN is for every citizen and legal residents in the country. BVN is our secondary database while NIN and the database is the primary one in the country that each and every institution should make reference to NIMC.”

Buratai: Buhari Repaid My Father By Making Me Chief Of Army Staff

 


The immediate past Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai (rtd), has admitted that the President gave him an appointment, because of the relationship between his father and Buhari.


Buratai stated this during a gala night organized by the 29th Regular Course Association in Abuja.


The event was to honour the ex Army Chief as the longest-serving COAS.


According to him, his appointment in July 2015 was a prize for the loyalty of his father, Yusuf Buratai, to Buhari.


Buratai’s father was a non-commissioned officer in the Royal West African Frontier Force and a World War II veteran who fought in Burma.


Buratai said, “My father was an ardent lover of the President and my appointment as COAS, therefore, was a price or reward for that gesture by the President.



“Of course, and as you have been told severally, we (the President and I) met in Njemena and he saw me and felt I was the right person to be COAS at that very crucial and critical moment of our history.


“And I am happy that we have discharged our responsibilities diligently, professionally and loyally, and I will continue to discharge my responsibilities to him and of course to our country and our people.

FBI Warned FG, CBN On Scammers Using Cryptocurrencies To Defraud The West

 


  • Christine Lagarde: Bitcoin facilitates questionable transactions
  • Nigeria surged to second highest crypto destination in the world raking $200 to $300million a week without underlining economic activity, alarming the CBN
  • FG alarmed kidnappers had switched to bitcoin for ransom payments


More facts have emerged on why the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) decided to ban cryptocurrency trading in the country.


The apex bank prohibited dealing in cryptocurrencies or facilitating payments for cryptocurrency exchanges last week Friday.


Investigations by THISDAY have revealed that, the federal government and the CBN were warned by the United States’ Federal Bureau of Investigation, (FBI), on the activities of fraudsters using cryptocurrencies to bringing into the country hundreds of millions of US Dollars illegally obtained from the USA and other Western economies.


This was said to have particularly targeted COVID-19 stimulus packages designed to cushion the impact of lockdown measures on businesses and working families in these countries.


In an interview at a Reuters online event last week Wednesday, President of the European Central Bank, Christine Lagarde said of bitcoin: “It’s a highly speculative asset that has led to some reprehensible activity, including money laundering, and any loopholes need to be closed.


“There has to be regulation. This has to be applied and agreed upon at a global level because if there is an escape that escape will be used; she said.


According to THISDAY investigation, “FBI had discovered that fraudulent Nigerians, popularly known as yahoo boys, took control of large chunks of money released as stimulus in the wake of the devastating effects of the COVID-19, which has put many Americans out of jobs.”


In order to avoid detection, these fraudsters had been sending millions of dollars to Nigeria through cryptocurrencies. This made it difficult for the authorities in both Nigeria and the US to trace the illicit monies.


However, before these funds were used to destabilise the Nigerian economy, the CBN had to wield the big stick.


In the last six months, Nigeria is said to have become the second country in the world with the biggest cryptocurrency transactions.


According to highly placed sources within the presidency, “These fraudsters remitted between $200 and $300 million to Nigeria every week, using cryptocurrencies.


“The Central Bank and the federal government were clearly alarmed by this development and had to act fast before irreparable damage is done to the economy.” Even more disturbing was that intelligence reports indicated that kidnappers had switched to bitcoin for ransom payments, making it increasingly difficult to trace.


To make matters worse, investigations by FBI showed Nigeria did not have the underlining economic base to justify the massive flow of funds on a weekly basis. To compound the issue, was how the inflows were being routed leaving investigators puzzled and perplexed by the elaborated complicated channels in the digital money world of anonymity.


After the FBI tip-off that these funds being pumped into cryptocurrencies were products of fraud, the federal government, acting through the CBN, had to ban cryptocurrencies in Nigeria.


A cryptocurrency (or crypto) is a digital unregulated currency that could be used to buy goods and services, but uses an online ledger with strong cryptography to secure online transactions.


Much of the interest in the currency, not backed by any government, is to trade for profit, with speculators at times driving prices skyward.


But the CBN had, at the weekend, directed banks and other financial institutions to immediately close any accounts dealing in cryptocurrency or facilitating payment for cryptocurrency exchange, with immediate effect.


The banking regulatory authorities directed banks to expose any individual and entity running such accounts, warning that failure to adhere to the directives would attract strict sanctions.


The apex bank, in its circular on the issue, cautioned deposit money banks, (DMBs) non-bank financial institutions (NBFIs) and other financial institutions (OFIs) as well as members of the public on the risk associated with transactions in cryptocurrency.


The Director of Banking Supervision, Bello Hassan, and the Director of Payments System Management Department, Musa Jimoh, signed the circular.


“Further to earlier regulatory directives on the subject, the Bank hereby wishes to remind regulated institutions that dealing in cryptocurrencies or facilitating payments for cryptocurrency exchanges is prohibited.


“Accordingly, all DMBs, NBFIs and OFIs are directed to identify persons and/or entities transacting in or operating cryptocurrency exchanges within their systems and ensure that such accounts are closed immediately.


“Please note that breaches of this directive will attract severe regulatory sanctions. This letter is with immediate effect,” it stated.


However, the CBN directive had immediately drawn heavy criticisms from the Nigerian public, with a former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, advising the apex bank to reverse the decision, arguing that the country couldn’t close her economy at this time


In a statement personally signed, Atiku said the number one challenge facing Nigeria was youth unemployment, explaining that it was not just a challenge, but also an emergency, because it affected the economy, and exacerbating insecurity in the nation.


Speaking against the backdrop of the decision of the CBN to ban and restrict banks transactions in the cryptocurrencies, Atiku said, “What Nigeria needs now, perhaps more than ever, are jobs and an opening up of our economy especially, after today’s report by the National Bureau of Statistics indicated that foreign capital inflow into Nigeria is at a four year low, having plummeted from $23.9 billion in 2019, to just $9.68 billion in 2020.”


He said already, the nation had suffered severe economic losses from the border closure, and the effects of the #COVID19 pandemic.


Accordingly, he explained, “This is definitely the wrong time to introduce policies that will restrict the inflow of capital into Nigeria, and I urge that the policy to prohibit the dealing and transaction of cryptocurrencies be revisited.


“It is possible to regulate the sub-sector and prevent any abuse that may be inimical to national security. That may be a better option, than an outright shutdown.


“There is already immense economic pressure on our youths. It must be the job of the government, therefore, to reduce that pressure, rather than adding to it.


“We must create jobs in Nigeria. We must expand the economy. We must remove every impediment towards investments. We owe the Nigerian people that much,” Atiku stated.

Nigerian Man, Two Ugandan Women Arrested For Drug Trafficking In India


A Nigerian man, identified as Kingsley, and two women from Uganda have been arrested with nine kilograms of narcotics in India. The country's Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) busted the smuggling network, according to a report by Outlook.


The women, Jascent Nakalungi and Sharifah Namaganda said to be cousins, were intercepted by the Delhi unit of the central probe agency on January 28 after they landed at the Indira Gandhi International Airport in India.


According to the NCB, the two women had a medical visa for the treatment of Namaganda.


The duo was apprehended based on the agency's inputs following a drugs case detected in December wherein over five kg of heroin was seized and two Indians were arrested.


NCB deputy director (operations) K P S Malhotra said, "A total of 8kg of heroin and one kg of cocaine has been seized from the women. The drugs were hidden in their luggage bags that were handed to them in Uganda."


Kingsley was also arrested after the women's leads were followed, Malhotra said.


"The case reflects the standard route employed for trafficking of cocaine, which is manufactured illegally in South American countries.


'The seizure of heroin from this network points towards the reverse route of heroin trafficking. The intensive measures by border guarding forces, both at the northwest frontier and the high seas, have compelled drug traffickers to divert their loads towards Africa's horn, which is Mozambique.


"Heroin concealed in various shipments then reaches other parts of Africa, where the organized syndicates arrange the carriers.


"Subsequently, human couriers transport the drugs to India by adopting various ways like hiding the narcotics in the body cavity and by concealing in baggage among other methods, " Malhotra noted.
