The Liberian government has began investigating the sudden disappearance of two huge shipments of Liberian dollar banknotes printed overseas and brought into the country between November 2017 and August 2018.
According to the presidency, the total amount of the two shipments of banknotes that have vanished is approximately $60 million.(about 2.1 trillion naira).
It was gathered that the containers of the money left a port at Monrovia, the country’s capital under heavy security escort but never made it into the bank till now.
It was also learnt that the convoy which was headed for the central bank suddenly disappeared and is nowhere to be found.
The Ministry of justice has however pleaded with Liberian citizens to remain calm while high ranking investigators look into the matter.
