It is a long story, but it all revolves around a garnishee order against the bank that it didn’t comply with, according to a court official who spoke to NAN on the condition of anonymity.

It was unsuccessful to speak with the unit’s leader and bank officials about the development.

In response to the development, some bank employees called it embarrassing and suggested a different course of action.

As calls and texts sent to an employee of the bank’s communications unit’s cell phone went unanswered, the bank’s headquarters in Lagos also failed to respond to the development.

Most of the bank’s clients could be seen hanging around outside in groups.
