IF YOU GET CAUGHT PRINTING FAKE NAIRA

Credits- Google 
If you get caught printing counterfeit Nigerian notes, it’s over. Pack your bags and get ready for prison for a long time. Don’t take my word for it though, you should read the provisions of the Counterfeit Currency (Special Provisions) Act, CAP C.35, Laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 2004. 
The law in Section 1 provides that: 


(1). Any person who falsely makes or counterfeits any bank note resembling any bank note issued by the Central Bank of Nigeria and which is legal tender in Nigeria, shall be guilty of an offence under this Act and shall on conviction thereof be sentenced to life imprisonment. 

(2). Any person who falsely makes or counterfeits any current coin resembling any bank note issued by the Central Bank of Nigeria and which is legal tender in Nigeria, shall be guilty of an offence under this Act and shall on conviction thereof be sentenced to life imprisonment. 

(3). Any person who falsely makes or counterfeits any bank note or coin resembling any bank note or current coin which is legal tender in any country other than Nigeria, shall be guilty of an offence under this Act and on conviction thereof shall be sentenced to life imprisonment. 
Do not participate in any form of criminality stated above, remember you were warned, there are many people in prison already for committing these crimes.
