According to reports reaching OYOGIST.com, Access Bank Plc has promised to rectify the issue some of its customers were facing due to their involvement in the recent ENDSARS Protest.

The bank further assured that it would play its part to ensure that they had access to their “accounts as quickly as possible.”

Oyogist.com further learnt that there has been an online campaign for customers to abandon the commercial bank as it allegedly froze the accounts of about eight persons involved in the #EndSARS protest, due to a court order obtained by the Central Bank of Nigeria.

The bank stated: “We want to express our sympathy for the inconvenience that eight of our customers are going through due to the restrictions on their accounts as mandated by a federal court order. We are eager for this to be resolved as soon as possible.”

Furthermore, the bank noted that: “It is common knowledge that we and the entire banking industry are regulated entities and therefore operate under the authority of our regulators and law enforcement agencies. As such we are compelled to comply with regulatory directives.

“While acknowledging the concern of all well-meaning parties, we urge that enquiries and views be channelled to the relevant regulatory and judicial agencies where the matter is receiving attention. It is therefore surprising that some individuals still choose to target Access Bank in a negative manner despite not being the source of the action.” it wrote.

Meanwhile More Nigerians have applauded Stanbic IBTC Bank, for refusing the Central Bank’s Directive to Close Accounts of Some EndSARS Protesters.
