The bank made the clarification in a statement by Kehinde Taiwo of the bank’s Marketing & Corporate Communications department on Friday.
“Please be informed that the referenced story is a misrepresentation of the facts and misleading.
“Neither our branch nor head office was sealed. On the 4th of August, 2022, there was unlawful enforcement at the Bank’s Coomassie House Branch of a garnishee order issued by a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, which orders the bank is still challenging in court.
“While the bank has taken appropriate legal steps to deal with the situation, we wish to reassure our customers of unhindered banking services and unique customer experience in all our branches and through our numerous alternative channels.”
