Nigeria’s central bank has collected 1.4 trillion naira ($3.9bln) from banks with excess cash holdings as part of measures to support the naira currency, banking sources told Reuters.
The levy helped banks meet a special cash ratio requirement imposed to help soak up liquidity from the banking system.
Money market rates spiked to between 10% and 15% following after the money was debited, from just 2% the previous session. (Reuters)
