The currencies had the same serial numbers raising a lot of suspicions.
Adegboyega allegedly admitted to transporting the “fake” currencies. He also revealed that it was his second time entering the country with counterfeit money.
He told officers that on this trip, he was given the cash by his friend who lives in Lagos, Nigeria, to be given to a client known as Mallam Isumaru Jeru in Abobo, Ivory Coast.
Majeed Amandi said the money will be sent to the Bank of Ghana to determine whether it is fake or genuine.
The suspect has since been in Accra for further interrogation.
