The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has detained an operations manager of a top commercial bank in Abuja Central Area for refusing to load the bank’s Automated Teller Machines, ATMs, despite the fact that the branch’s vaults contained N29 million in the newly designed Naira notes.
The operatives ordered the filling of all the ATMs and the payment of the required amount across the counter before he was taken away for further interrogation, much to the joy of the upset customers who had waited hours in line without receiving the new notes.
The EFCC made this finding as part of regular monitoring and visits to banks around the nation to access their vaults and determine whether they were purposefully refusing to dispense the redesigned Naira notes. This finding suggests that some banks are sabotaging the government’s monetary policy.
The Abuja operatives today covered more than five bank branches. In zonal commands all over the nation, comparable drills were in progress.
According to a statement by EFCC spokesman Wilson Uwujaren, the organization would continue to monitor banks and detain disobedient personnel until the banking system returns to normal.
Nigerians who are having trouble accessing their money at any bank or who suspect wrongdoing are urged to get in touch with the EFCC right away for prompt assistance.
