Protests over Naira scarcity have erupted in Ogun State, with images online showing two banks set on fire in the Sagamu area of the state.

The videos shared on Monday showed many residents watching as Keystone and Union banks were set ablaze with some youths holding planks in protest.

Breezy News reported last Friday that protests broke out in the Mowe-Ibafo area of Ogun State, with numerous citizens blocking the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway in protest of the difficulties and hardship caused by the persistent scarcity of the naira.

Reacting to the development, a Twitter user, @arranowanna wrote, “Kindly advise your friends, families, and acquaintances to avoid any protests. Take your frustration to the ballots on Saturday. Don’t burn banks, don’t burn petrol stations, don’t burn government properties.”

Another user, @morningstar_305 wrote, “I just put a call through to the house and it was confirmed to me that keystone bank and union bank at ijoku has been set ablaze by angry citizens.”

While popular tweep, Pooja, wrote, “If you are in Sagamu, be careful cos there is a protest on new naira notes.”

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Bola Oyeyemi, could not be reached at the time of filing this report, as phone calls to his line were not responded to.
