Hope Ihesiaba (33) and Ifeanyi Ihesiaba were arrested by the Isheri Police Division on Saturday May 28th.

Hope however denied producing the notes saying:

“I do not produce fake naira notes. I have a friend who does that. His name is Odiyi, and he sells in a market in Aba.

“I
gave him N28,000 real money and he gave me the N80,000 fake naira
notes. I knew the money was fake; but I did it to help myself. I gave my
brother parts of the money. He in turn gave some to two of his friends. I am not married. I just needed money and I was tempted to collect the notes.”

Ifeanyi added:

“My brother and I live together in an estate in
Oluwakemi. On Saturday, I went to the Magodo area where I wanted to buy a
recharge card from a woman. She just checked the note and raised the
alarm. She started shouting on me until some security guards called the
police and I was arrested.

“The policemen came and searched my
brother’s house. They found all the notes there. I was given the fake
notes, I don’t produce them.”
