Tension mount in Onitsha Main Market, Anambra state (Nigeria) as operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) stormed the market after arresting seven traders at the Enugu Interna­tional Airport for alleged money laundering.

It is reported that the development sparked fears es­pecially among importers and operators of Bureau de Change in the market.


A source said the arrested trad­ers who were traveling either to China or Dubai were carrying with them dollars more than the stipulated approved amount for those traveling outside Nigeria, adding that some had $100,000, while others were in possession of $60,000. The officially al­lowed maximum travel allow­ance is $5000. Source: Sun News
