Due to a shortage of naira, Zenith Bank suspends branch operations

Posted by

Due to alleged attacks on its staff and network, Zenith Bank has closed some of its branches in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and some states.

On Tuesday, a NAN correspondent observed some of the bank’s branches in the FCT, its environs, and other states, and discovered that they were locked.

Both the gate and the bank’s ATM Gallery at the Zenith Bank Check-Point branch on Nyanya-Mararaba Road were locked, and there were no customers in the area.

Some of the bank’s branches were also closed due to a lack of new naira notes, according to an anonymous bank employee.

Customers who were unable to withdraw the new notes from their accounts attacked many of their branches across the country, the official stated.

According to NAN, some social media videos showed how bank employees climbed fences to avoid customer mobs attacking the attacked branches.

In the meantime, some bank customers have vented their frustrations on social media.
