Some really angry youths on Wednesday have set bank ablazed in Warri town of Delta State.
The protesters set fire to one of the branches of Access Bank while protesting against the persisting scarcity of Naira notes that has forced many businesses across the country to shut down.
This was captured in viral videos showing the angry youths protesting around Udu road axis disrupting the vehicle movements and destroying valuable properties in the area.
While sharing the video via his Twitter page, a witness, @sabiboiharry said, “Breaking! 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.”
It was also gathered that one of the protesters sustained gunshot injury during the violent protest.
Many Nigerians are currently unable to obtain the new N200, N500, and N1,000 notes, resulting in scarcity and attendant suffering in the country.
This led the youths and some residents of the state to stage the protest.
