A Muslim body, the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), has expressed concern over what it termed a Jewish symbol on the country’s new N100 note.
The new N100 note was unveiled to Nigerians recently by President Goodluck Jonathan in commemoration of Nigeria’s 100 years’ anniversary.
However, MURIC, in a statement by its Director, Professor Ishaq Akintola, alleged the insertion of a Jewish symbol into the new currency, demanding explanation from the Federal Government.
It said its office had been inundated with calls by those who had observed the symbol.
In a statement issued on Sunday, Akintola said it was paramount for the government to urgently address the issue.
Many believe though that it is not a Jewish sign.
