Nigerian AAX users who are upset are instructed to spare local workers

A local report claims that a gang of angry Atom Asset Exchange (AAX) users from Nigeria recently broke into the cryptocurrency exchange’s offices in Lagos and beat workers.

Even though the Legit report from December 2 does not specify when the incident took place, it supports a previous request made by the advocacy organization Stakeholders in Blockchain Technology Association of Nigeria (SIBAN).

SIBAN advised AAX customers to avoid harassing the employees of the troubled cryptocurrency exchange in its public notification from November 28.

We request and forbid any unhappy or irate investor or user from harassing or victimizing the AAX Country Manager (Nigeria), any regional employees, or AAX ambassadors around the country.

The advocacy group also disclosed that the senior executives of the cryptocurrency exchange with its headquarters in Hong-Kong had cut off contact with their staff members who were based in Nigeria.

While this was going on, the advocacy group reminded the cryptocurrency exchange of its duties to users in a note addressed to AAX and its founders.

The letter also recommended various actions that AAX and the Nigerian employees should take to win back the public’s trust.
