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.
“Dear customer, due to the 24-hour curfew imposed in Lagos State from 4pm today, please note the following:
“All our branches in Lagos are now closed and will remain closed for the duration of the curfew.
“Our contact centre will only be available via WhatsApp. Please chat with us on WhatsApp on +2347016974994 which is available 24 hours, Mondays to Fridays or visit our help centre at www.gtbank.com/help-center.
“Please note that all our digital channels are fully available 24/7 and you can continue banking with us through these channels: GTBWorld, Mobile App, *737*, ATM and Internet,” the email notice cited by Business Post noted.
