Man arrested with fake €1.25million at Lagos airport

The Murtala Muhammed Airport Police Command in Lagos has arrested a 45-year old man, Mr. Lawrence Agbe, for allegedly being in possession of €1.25million (about N274million), suspected to be fake currencies.
Agbe was on his way to Abuja before he was apprehended by the police.
The Commissioner of Police (CP) for the command, Mr. Fredrick Lakanu, on Monday explained that Agbe was arrested while boarding a flight at the international wing of the MMA in Lagos en-route to Abuja.
Lakanu further explained that in the course of police investigations, a search warrant was executed by a team of detectives from the Domestic Airport Police Division to search the suspect’s printing press in Agege, Lagos, where over 2,000 police statement forms were recovered.
The CP said, “After further interrogation, the suspect mentioned one Steve residing in Abuja as the owner of the said €1.25m. But Steve is at large.”
