The bank also said the figure surpassed the total outflow by $57.32 billion in the period.

According to the bank, inflow through the CBN  was $42.17 billion, while inflow through  autonomous sources amounted to  $48.33 billion.

In percentage terms, inflow through the CBN accounted for 46.3 per cent, while autonomous sources took 53.7 per cent.

Also, aggregate foreign exchange outflow, from the economy, increased by 31.8 per cent to U$33.68 billion, higher than the $25.55 billion in 2016.

The report said the outflow through the CBN accounted for 90.7 per cent,  about $30.55 billion. It was $23.16 billion in 2016.
