First Bank PLC has faulted news reports purporting that its head/branch office has been sealed.
The foremost Bank, in a press statement signed by Kehinde Taiwo, of Marketing and Corporate Communications, said the online report was conflicting, as it was in one version claiming head office, while in the other reporting branch outlet.
The statement reads in part: “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 an unlawful enforcement at the Bank’s Coomassie House Branch of a garnishee order issued by a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja which order the Bank is still challenging in court.”
The Bank said it has has taken appropriate legal steps to deal with the situation, stressing “we wish to reassure our customers of unhindered banking services and unique customer experience in all our branches and through our numerous alternative channels”
