Security personnel attached to Malam Aminu Kano International airport on Thursday intercepted bags filled with different foreign currencies suspected to have been smuggled into the country via Ethiopian Airline.

Security sources at the airport disclosed that the Ethiopian Airline had arrived the airfield at about 2pm local time, and shortly after it departed Kano, the suspicious bags were uncovered.

The sources, who pleaded anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the matter, explained that “shortly after the passengers disembarked from the aircraft they (security men)  uncovered suspicious luggage.”

Said one of the multiple sources: “As soon as the Airline left, some Security Personnel uncovered some suspicious Luggage and upon checking them different Foreign currencies were seen hiding in them”.

He spoke further, “upon close scrutiny further assorted foreign currencies in Dollars, Euro, pound Starlings and others were uncovered”.

The source said that "it was at that moment we called for reinforcement  and in no time the police, DSS, Custom, Immigration and even EFCC drafted their men in combat gears.

“The security personnels began counting the money thereafter and it took them six hours to round off."

However, the sources failed to divulge the sum total of the foreign  currencies seized as doing so could expose their identity.
