A Twitter user, Homodayor tweeted ,“Scarcity of new naira notes and rejection of N1000 and N500 old notes have led to protest and chaos in some parts of Lagos State such as Ikorodu, Mile 12, Mowe, Ibafo, Ojota , Agege and Igando.

I hope security operatives would restore sanity to the violence areas.

“Ibafo, Magboro,Mowe ,Ogun state is something else now, nowhere safe in  Nigeria again ”.
