She cried out that the situation has led to lack in her home.

The women disrupted vehicular activities as they blocked both sides of the road.

Earlier, the Supreme Court nullified the ban on use of the old N200, N500 and N1000 banknotes as legal tenders.

The apex court, in a unanimous decision by a seven-member panel of Justices, held that the old banknotes should remain valid legal tenders until December 31.

It held that the old Naira notes should be used alongside the redesigned currencies.

However, the body languages of President Muhammadu Buhari and the CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele, have stirred doubt in the hearts of Nigerians.
