Nigerians thrash bank on social media
They expressed disgust with the bank for appearing in the news for the same reasons all the time.
Last year, a customer of the bank lamented how she lost N6 million in five minutes from the Bank and got it back after Nigerians came after the bank on social media.
One person wrote:
“4 million naira.... I don't even want to hear, you must refund that money. Refund the money first before doing your investigations.”
“Sigh. How can someone’s life savings be deducted, just like that?!
This is evil of the highest order and the bank just has to get this resolved. No two ways about this!”
A third person stated:
“Zenith are appearing in the news more often for similar cases.”
The bank is yet to respond to inquiries from Legit.ng as of the time of writing.
