The Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, on Monday said there is no truth in a report alleging that faceless agents, backed by regulators, were exploiting the nation’s multiple exchange rates.

According to the report, the activities of the faceless agents which have devastating effects on the forex market, gives the agents about N32 billion annually.

The CBN, in a statement on Monday, said: “The forex rates across various markets governed and regulated by the CBN, have been converging, leaving no room for arbitrage opportunities in Nigeria’s forex market.
