Woman Arrested By ICPC For Selling New Naira Notes Identified As Actress Simisola Gold

KanyiDaily had reported that Simisola Gold was arrested by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), for selling new naira notes on social media.

Simisola Gold, whose birth name is Omoseyin Oluwadarasimi Esther, with Twitter handle @SimisolaofLala, was arrested on Wednesday following intelligence received by the ICPC operatives.

The ICPC’s spokesperson, Azuka Ogugua in a statement on Wednesday night, said it is believed the suspect is in collusion with key elements in the financial services sector diverting the newly released notes away from banking halls and payment channels into a “black market”

“Oluwadarasimi Emma, a social media ‘serial entrepreneur’ who deals in skincare, sales of fuel, facilitation of foreign travels through visa acquisitions, and other businesses, seized the opportunity of the scarcity of the new naira notes to openly market the new notes.

“It is believed she is in collusion with key elements in the financial services sector diverting the newly released notes away from banking halls and payment channels into a ‘black market.’

She is currently in ICPC detention and is helping the Commission with its findings on the criminal trading of the naira and the attendant scarcity and negative economic outcomes being caused by the action.

“The action is in furtherance of the collaboration between CBN, ICPC and EFCC in implementing the new cashless policy and naira redesign,” the statement reads.

Kanyi Daily had also published a video showing the moment a woman stripped naked inside a bank in Lagos to express her frustration over the scarcity of Naira notes.
