The Murtala Mohammed International Airport Police Command has arrested a 45-year old man, Lawrence Agbe, for allegedly being in possession of 1.25 million fake Euros.

Commissioner of Police in the command, Mr Fredrick Lakanu, disclosed this in Lagos on Monday, July 7.

He said the suspect, who resides at No.5, Itogbe Street, Orile-Agege, Lagos, was arrested on June 25 at about 6pm.

“In the course of investigation, a search warrant was executed by a team of police detectives from Domestic Airport Division at the suspect’s printing press in Agege, Lagos, where over 2,000 police statement forms were recovered.

“On further interrogation, the suspect mentioned one Steve residing in Abuja now at large, as the owner of the said Euro notes,” Lakanu said.

He said that the suspect had since been charged to court.

Lakanu also disclosed that more than 30 motorcycles were recently impounded, while 35 airport touts were arrested and charged to court for unlawful entry and touting.


The commissioner said these were evidence that the airports had been secured to guarantee the safety of passengers, airport community and airline operators.

Lakanu appealed to members of the public for their cooperation to enable the police check activities of undesirable elements at the airports.
