The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has warned Bureau De Change (BDC) operators not to compromise with issues of illegal cash movement.
The commission gave the warning on Thursday, July 2, 2020 at a meeting held at its Sokoto Zonal office with BDC Operators.
Lawal, the Zonal head of the commission reminded the operators that the commission was saddled with the responsibility and prosecuting those involved in money laundering, terrorist financing as well as monitoring suspicious movement of money between bureau de change operators and their customers.
“This cannot be achieved by the EFCC alone but with the help of your institution”, he said.
“The EFCC is ready to deal with individuals, group and organisations that conspire with the bad eggs in the country to perpetrate the act of money laundering and banditry financing.”
Further speaking, Lawal asked the Bureau De Change operators to keep records of all transactions or face the risk of prosecution.
