The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has arrested an accountant of Oando Filling Station, Dutse Alhaji, Abuja over alleged racketeering of the new Naira notes.

This latest arrest followed the continued onslaught by the Commission on some elements who have taken advantage of the scarcity of the redesigned Naira notes to swindle unsuspecting Nigerians.

The ICPC Monitoring Team had earlier received a tip-off that the said filling station deliberately disconnected its Point of Sale (POS) services so that motorists could not have access to the Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), popularly called petrol, using their Automated Teller Machine (ATM) cards.

Upon reaching the Petrol Station, the Team found out that motorists were forced to pay for the product in cash, and those without the new notes were directed to a POS operator directly opposite the Filling Station to access the cash.

The Commission is expected to unravel the connection between the Accountant and the PoS operator.
