Written by broadstreet on October 27, 2021
The Central Bank of Nigeria’s attention has been drawn to criminal and unlawful acts by some persons, as well as a phoney Twitter handle, @enaira_cbdc, purported to belong to the Bank.
This was disclosed in a circular titled “Beware of Fraudsters, Fake eNaira Social Media Handles” signed by Osita Nwanisobi Director, Corporate Communications.
This is coming days after the successful launch of the eNaira, which placed Nigeria as the first country in Africa with a CBDC.
