Nigeria’s premier financial institution, Firstbank has dismissed a news report that the Bank branch or/head office has been sealed by a court order.

In a statement, the bank referred to the report as a misrepresentation of the facts and misleading.

“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 order the Bank is still challenging in court,”.

The statement noted that while the Bank has taken appropriate legal steps to deal with the situation, it wishes to reassure our customers of unhindered banking services and the unique customer experience in all of its branches and through its numerous alternative channels.
