“Before joining any street protests, think twice. In fact, don’t do it. Take it from me, this is what they want you to do so that elections can be postponed and a dastardly “Interim Government” is cobbled up comprising the same clique. I have told them to count me out of it. Never!” he wrote.
SaharaReporters earlier reported that some angry youths in Warri town, Delta State, on Wednesday set fire to branches of Access Bank and Union Bank while protesting against the persisting scarcity of naira notes that had forced many businesses across the country to shut down.
This was captured in viral videos showing angry youths protesting around Udu Road axis, disrupting vehicular movements and destroying valuable properties in the area.
The protest was said to have been caused by the rejection of old naira notes by the banks and their inability to dispense new naira notes.
