Fierce looking security operatives have taken over the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Kaduna branch, as hundreds of residents besieged the entrance gate Friday morning.
As early as 7:30 am, residents with old currency notes besieged the CBN entrance gate.
The bank had ordered customers of commercial banks to deposit their old currency no later than today, February 17.
Our correspondent interviewed one of the customers, Mrs. Samson Ejira. She disclosed that she came with all the requirements needed to deposit her old currency, but the apex bank had not attended to her.
“I was here on Thursday, but nobody, no staff of the bank, attended to us. I am hoping that they will attend to us today,” she said.
Also, Mrs. Rhoda Usman, who spoke in a similar vein, said they were confused in Kaduna on the use of the old currency notes.
“The bank is not attending to us. Rather, they lined up several security operatives against us,” she lamented.
