Protesters Block the Lagos-Abeokuta expressway because to a lack of Cash in Town

They burned old tires in bonfires on both sides of the road, seriously clogging up traffic.

According to some demonstrators who spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the current financial crisis has caused excruciating pains and sufferings.

Kazeem Sanni, the demonstrators’ leader, called it terrible that bank customers were unable to retrieve their money.

He claimed that bank customers had been put in a double-risk situation because the banks wouldn’t allow depositors to make withdrawals within the banking rooms or allow money to be loaded into their ATMs.
