FirstBank Branch, Head office, not Sealed

FirstBank of Nigeria (FBN) has debunked the report that the bank’s corporate head office have been sealed after a garnishee order issued by a Federal High Court in Abuja.

The Bank in a statement issued on Friday by Ismail Omamegbe, Head, Media, External Relations; Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability said story is a misrepresentation of the facts and misleading.

He said an online media report had claimed that the bank’s headquarters located at the Central Business District of Abuja, had been sealed up by the FCT High Court Enforcement Unit over failure to comply with a garnishee order.

The statement read: 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 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. 

While the Bank has taken appropriate legal steps to deal with the situation, we wish to reassure our customers of unhindered banking services and unique customer experience in all our branches and through our numerous alternative channels.
