Aba residents turn bank to fast food spot
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that with the prolonged cash crunch and scarcity of new notes across various states in Nigeria, citizens have devised several means to survive the ordeal. While some chose to protest, like in Oyo state, residents in Aba, Abia state turned a commercial bank into a restaurant.
At the bank, residents were seen to have arrived in the area with the camping gas, pots and other cooking utensils. However, the video seen by Legit.ng did not show the moment the residents, who might have waited hours in the bank to get cash, cooked their food - noodles. Instead, the video review showed that about four men were eating from the pot from which the noodles were prepared.
The young men took turns eating the food, and many other residents in the queue by the Automated Teller Machines in the bank watched in awe. A voice speaking in the background of the video said that residents had been camped within the bank premises for hours with the hope of getting some cash.
