CBN, Emefiele Vs AbokiFX, Oniwinde Adedotun

Oniwinde Adedotun and AbokiFX Limited are currently under investigation for “illegal foreign exchange transactions”.

CBN is said to be investigating seven accounts belonging to Adedotun and abokiFX, vetting every forex transaction from 2019 till 2021.

Reports on social media claim that Adedotun is being investigated for foreign exchange rate manipulation, but another source within the bank said he could not confirm the rumours.

CBN To Capture, Arrest And Prosecute Olumide Oniwinde, owner of AbokiFX – Emefiele

At the recently concluded MPC meeting by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), the CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele responded to rumours on social media about CBN making enquiries on the legality of the operations of abokiFX.

Emiefiele, while responding to questions after the MPC meeting on Friday, September 17, 2021, referred to Mr Olumide Oniwinde, the owner of abokiFX as an illegal FX dealer who will be prosecuted for endangering the Nigerian economy.

AbokiFX is a website that publishes the parallel market exchange rate of the Naira against other currencies of the world on a daily basis.

According to the governor, Mr Olumide Oniwinde started the abokiFX operation in 2015 and has since milked the economy by taking position, while manipulating the exchange rate. He stated that “The CBN act section 2, does make it clear that only the Central Bank can determine the value of the naira, and yet a single individual living in England continues to manipulate the exchange rate and make huge profit which he withdraws through an ATM in London.”

He explained that despite the company filing the same figures of 1,000 pounds in its financial statements for the past 4 years, Mr Oniwinde and the company has over 25 bank accounts in Nigeria with about 8 banks both in naira and dollar with significant turnover.

He also confirmed that the apex bank wrote a memo to banks to provide the information about abokiFX as he stated that the CBN has been studying the activities of abokiFX in the last two and half years.

“There was a particular time I asked our colleagues to call the so-called owner of abokiFX, that we want to understand his model and how he came about advertising those rate, we find him as someone, a Nigerian who lives in England and conducts this nefarious activity on our economy.

“It is economic sabotage and we will pursue him, wherever he is, we will report him to international security agencies, we will track him, Mr Oniwinde, we will find you, because we cannot allow you to continue to conduct an illegal activity that kills our economy.” Emefiele said.

Mr Emefiele reiterated that their preliminary findings suggest that the website was built and is being used purely for the purpose of foreign exchange manipulation and speculations. “They get naira loans, use to purchase dollars, take a position, change the rate over a given period, sell the dollars they purchased and make a profit, this is completely illegal, unacceptable and we will pursue them,” he explained.

Why this matter

The recent clampdown on the owner of abokiFX by the Central Bank is in its bid to defend the naira against other currencies as the variance between the official rate and the black market continues to widen.

Recall that the apex bank, two months ago discontinued the sales of forex to BDC operators in the company, due to alleged acts of sabotaging the country’s economy.

Godwin emefiele said some strong words towards aboki fx and took a stand against bdc’s, he said aboki fx are manipulating the forex market and needed to be stopped before more damages are done.

He explained that Nigeria must stop empowering black market entities and use proper channels to disseminate information

Emefiele stated that the founder of aboki fx Oniwinde Adedotun lives in the UK, enjoys their facilities and withdraws money from the platform through an ATM in the UK. He Urged the oniwinde to “come out and fight”

AbokiFX is a web platform that reports changed in the foreign exchange market since as early as 2014.

On the website, Naira is quoted at 570 to the dollar at the black market, though the apex bank had described it as an illegal market.

The only exchange rate remains the I&E window, which is the market we expect everybody who wishes to procure or sell forex to get it,” Emefiele said.

“I am sorry to say that I do not, and I do not intend to recognise any fx in the market.

“Go to your bank. Even if your limit is above what the bank is selling, put it forward, and we will look into it.

AbokiFX Finally Speaks


abokiFX has taken the decision today, the 17th of September 2021, to temporarily suspend rate updates on all our platforms, until we get better clarity of the situation.

Final rates have been posted this evening but the abokiFX news section and the Crypt° rates section will still be active. 


abokiFX was established in 2014 as a research and information service company, to conduct market research and gather data on the parallel market rates.

We also wanted to provide some transparency around the parallel market with the availability of information technology.

abokiFX purely provides benchmark parallel rate information which helps guide our users in almost 200 countries across the world. 

abokiFX does NOT TRADE FX, which we have always maintained in our emails and social media platforms.

We do not Trade FX neither do we have the power to manipulate the rates as we DO NOT CREATE the rates.

We are the only entity in Nigeria that has a full set of parallel rates, right from our inception in 2014 when the exchange rate was trading at N166 to Sl.

We collated data for years before we started publishing, as we realised the demand increased for our historical data.

To most users of our platforms, we are just a parallel rates board but to many institutions, ranging frorn IVY league universities, to global businesses and research centres, we area keysource of data, especially, historical data (almost a decade's worth of data on parallel rates). 

Companies use our data for their internal and external audits as well as planning and budgeting.

We ONLY publish what we source on the streets of Lagos, hence the phrase, Lagos Parallel Rates. The rates sourced are carefully collated, reviewed and a mean rate is published from the data pool. This explains our three daily updates - * Morning, ** Midday, ***Evening.

Sometimes, rates come in late but we have to wait for the full set of rates before they are published, to prevent volatility of rates. 

None of our data source providers know who we are or what their rates are being used for. This is to avoid any manipulation of rates. 

Our staff have a daily routine of going to the market to gather rates, as all the BDCs in the country have their rates clearly displayed on their rates board and parallel market rate dealers give the information away freely. 

All we do is collate all that information and display it on all our platforms daily. 

REPLAY OF 2017 vs 2021

In 2017, Nigeria experienced an FX crises and the Naira depreciated to over N500/$1. abokiFX was accused of manipulating the parallel market rates.

Once liquidity was injected, the Naira appreciated and we published the appreciation which is basically what we do. 

2021 has seen a similar scenario with the naira depreciating and we have published what we have been given, which has led some to believe we are manipulating the market. Yet no one can complain about our rates deviating +/- 2% from the parallel market rates when they patronise the dealers in the rnarket. 

If we do not create the rates, how then can we control the rates. Our only sources of income have been our API and advert sales. 


All allegations against our director are yet to be confirrned but we at abokiFX DO NOT trade FX neither do we manipulate parallel rnarket rates.

Outside the media allegation, we have not received any communication from any government body and our accounts are not closed as stipulated in the media.


abokiFX is fully functional BUT we will not be publishing any form of rates on our platforms for now. We sincerely hope this suspension will lead to the Naira appreciation from next week. With our decision to temporarily suspend online rate publication, we are aware that there will be limited visibility of parallel rates information which will impact decision making for rnany.
