Report states that, Fidelity Bank of Nigeria has shut down about three of its branches in Lagos for repair.
According to Business Post, the affected branches of the financial institutions are located in Ibeju Lekki, Lagos Business School and Lekki Phase 1. They were touched by some youths in the aftermath of the Lekki Toll Gate shooting of #EndSARS protesters by soldiers last Tuesday.
The destruction of properties belonging to both the government and private organisations led to the imposition of a 24-hour curfew on the state by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
Last Friday, the Governor announced that from Saturday, October 24, 2020, the curfew would be relaxed to 4pm – 8am and on Sunday, he further announced that the movement restriction would be eased from Monday, October 26, 2020, to 6pm to 8am.
In view of this, many businesses in the metropolis resumed today and Fidelity Bank, in a notice sent to its customers via an email on Monday, disclosed that its branches in the state would operate from 9am to 2pm.
In the notice cited by Business Post, the lender noted that three branches earlier mentioned will not be open to customers, advising them to use other branches nearer to them.
“Following the update on the partial curfew imposed by Lagos and other state governments, our branches in these locations will operate during the hours of 9am and 2pm commencing from tomorrow, Monday, October 26, 2020, pending further announcements by any of these state governments.
“Please note that our branches at Ibeju Lekki, Lagos Business School and Lekki Phase 1 are unavailable during this period to allow for repairs.
