The management of Guaranty Trust Bank (GTBank) Plc has announced the closure of its branches in Lagos State from Wednesday, October 21, 2020.

This followed the imposition of a 24-hour curfew in the state by the Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Tuesday, October 20, 2020.

The Governor on Tuesday afternoon declared a curfew in the state following the burning of a police station in the Orile Iganmu area of the state.

As a result of this, the bank has said its branches in the state will remain shut until the movement restriction is lifted by the state government.

This lender made this known in a message to its customers on Tuesday night.
