Naira crisis: Protesters storm Ondo CBN to change old notes

Nigerians in possession of the old notes of N200, N500 and N100 notes on Tuesday, stormed Ondo State branch of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) in Akure to change their old notes to new ones.

The Informant247 gathered that many of them claimed to have so many of the old notes in their possession.

Meanwhile, the Officials of the bank told the protesters to go to their respective Commercial banks to swap the notes, but insisted they have been to their banks and were asked to return to the apex bank.

One of the protesters, Francis, said that they were at the CBN at Alagbaka Akure because the commercial banks refused to collect the old notes from them, adding that he could not allow his money to become useless.

However, Policemen were later drafted to the scene and after some minutes, some CBN officials informed the protesters that the commercial banks have been contacted to begin the collection of old notes.
