A video has surfaced online of some officials of a Nigerian bank scaling a barbed wire fence to escape angry customers.
Varied reactions by Nigerians have trailed the scarcity of the new Naira notes which were introduced last year.
Numerous videos have shown some Nigerians waiting hours on long queues to use the ATM, while others have resorted to sleeping over to catch a spot the next day.
More extreme and intense reactions have also been recorded as some residents have stormed banks to destroy the properties both of the bank and its workers.
To avoid falling victim of being manhandled by some aggrieved customers, some bank officials resorted to scaling the bank’s fence with a ladder.
Although it is not known where the incident occurred, a viral video online captured the staff taking turns climbing a fence.
TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) had earlier reported that the scarcity of the new naira notes and the difficulty in accessing the few available ones are proving to be a daunting experience for Nigerians across the country.
The challenges thrown up by the scarcity of the new notes were visible in banks across the nation as hordes of residents who had gone to banks to withdraw some cash were left stranded.
Many begged to be given the old naira notes in the absence of the new ones, to enable them to attend to pressing needs requiring funds, but banks did not yield to their appeal.
At the Bank road of Agbara, Badagry LGA area of Lagos, customers/Nigerians were seen waiting at various banks (Union Bank, First Bank, GTCB, Access Bank, FCMB) as they could not get money from inside these banks and their ATMs.
