Another round of protests broke out on Wednesday in several states across the country, including Oyo, Delta, and Edo, over the scarcity of the new N200, N500, N1,000 notes and rejection of the old naira bills.
The protests turned violent in Ibadan, Oyo State and Udu, near Warri, the commercial hub of Delta State.
There were demonstrations in different parts of Ibadan, such as Mokola, resulting in a gridlock along Eleyele/Eruwa road.
Cars were turned back at some point while some schoolchildren were forced to return home as a result of the protest.
Commercial activities were grounded as the Mokola Road was turned into a football field.
Most major roads were deserted as many residents resorted to trekking long distances.
Massive protest ongoing in Warri, around Udu road axis, over the CBN’s order to stop old Naira as legal tender.
Access Bank on fire.
Will there be a Feb 25th?
