First Bank of Nigeria Limited has reassured customers that its branches in the south-east are open for business following closure on Monday, May 31.
The bank had on Monday announced closure due to security reasons over the sit-at-home declared by the Indigenous People of Biafra in the region.
However, it said in a mail to Qed.ng on Wednesday that its branches in the south-east are open for business.
“This is to inform the public that our South East branches are fully open for business. Please disregard any news making the rounds that is contrary to this,” the bank said.
It also posted the statement to Twitter.
Banks, shops, schools were shut and roads deserted on Monday in the south-east as residents stayed indoors over the sit-at-home order to honour fallen Biafran soldiers.
