FirstBank of Nigeria Limited has clarified the false news on the sealing of its head office and branch in Abuja contrary to some media reports.
The fake news peddlers had reported that the head office of FirstBank in Central Business District, Abuja, was been sealed off based on the order of an FCT High Court Enforcing a garnishee order.
FirstBank described the story as a misrepresentation of facts and contorted news.
The bank disclosed this in a statement saying, “Our attention has been drawn to the news reports online with the conflicting claims that FirstBank branch or/head office has been sealed.
“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 the unique customer experience in all our branches and through our numerous alternative channels.”
