Clients of crypto exchange AAX, which has recently suspended the withdrawal of funds, have stormed the company’s office in Lagos (Nigeria) demanding the return of their money and beat the employees there.
The Blockchain Technologies Association of Nigeria (SIBAN) has come out in defense of the local staff of the Hong Kong-based platform. The group has urged dissatisfied users and investors to be patient.
According to the statement, workers are “facing the same situation” and the connection between them and the headquarters of the exchange is “quite tense.”
According to the letter:
“Therefore, we call on all Nigerian users of AAX for understanding and patience.”
