Exactly ten hours ago, we posted a news on Innoson’s claims of taking over GTBank. In a press statement released by the indigenous automobile company, the Chairman of Innoson Group, Chief Dr Innocent Chukwuma, OFR through a Writ of FiFa took over Guaranty Trust Bank PLC for and on behalf of Innoson Nigeria Ltd as a result of the Bank’s indebtedness to Innoson Nigeria Ltd.
In reaction to the news which had already gone viral, GTBank speaks up.
The attention of Guaranty Trust Bank PLC (“the Bank”) has been drawn to statements circulating in the news and social media in respect of a purported enforcement of a judgement of the Federal High court, Ibadan, Oyo state, at one of its branches in Anambra state,” it said in a statement on Friday night.
The Bank as a law-abiding corporate citizen is taking all necessary legal steps to address this situation and ensure that no illegal or fraudulent execution is carried out.
It is important to state that the Judgment allegedly in issue is in respect of a Garnishee Proceedings against the account of the Nigerian Customs Service Board domiciled with the Bank and not against the Bank as an entity.
The Bank remains committed to providing best-in- class customer experience to all its valued customers.
