Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, on Friday stripped 4, 173 bureau de changes of their operational licenses, it has been learnt.

The affected BDC operators failed to comply with various regulatory provisions such as timely payment of fees, submission of required reports, and adherence to CBN directives related to Anti-Money Laundering (AML), Countering the Financing of Terrorism (CFT), and Counter-Proliferation Financing (CPF) regulations.
