Emefiele also said that the plan to redesign the naira follows the need to curtail the activities of corrupt politicians and terrorists who have hoarded the old notes obtained through various illegal means.
Ibrahim also noted that the terrorists have also reduced the ransom from N10 million to N5 million but still maintain the condition that the money will be paid in the new naira notes.
“As we were trying to gather the money demanded by the terrorists, they sent another message this morning that they would not collect old naira notes.
“They said they would keep the abducted persons in their camps until the release of the new naira notes in December.”
According to the Punch, calls made to the state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Mohammed Shehu, and the state Commissioner for Information, Ibrahim Dosara, rang out.
It also added that messages sent to their mobile numbers were yet to be responded to as of the time of filing this report.
