Some terrorists have been seen brandishing the new naira notes.
In a viral video, notorious terrorist leader, Machalla Baleri boasted that he has enough of the new naira notes to buy weapons amid a scarcity of the naira.
This is as banking halls across various commercial banks in Lagos, Osun, Ekiti, and other parts of the country witnessed minimal activity as frustrated customers resorted to alternative means of cash withdrawal following the scarcity of naira notes in the banks.
While most banking halls were empty due to the paucity of funds in bank vaults, large crowds had formed outside some of the few banks that were rumoured to be preparing to load their Automated Teller Machines.
But the bandit leader, in an unverified video released online on Wednesday, claimed that he had enough of the new naira notes.
Baleri, who spoke in the Hausa language in the two minutes 20 seconds video clip, claimed he had up to N10 million of the new naira notes.
He also claimed he had enough new naira notes to purchase more weapons.
