The affected customer confirmed this new development to FIJ on Tuesday.
“Someone called me from the bank’s headquarters on Tuesday and said a resolution had been reached on the matter, and that the bank had decided to clear the loan that was taken in my name,” a delighted Adebisi said.

On November 19, FIJ had reported how a thief stole Adebisi’s phone and used the sensitive account details stored on it to obtain a loan from the bank.
Adebisi had subsequently visited one of the bank’s branches to tender a police report and a sworn affidavit concerning the incident, but the bank would insist that he repaid the loan since it was requested for through his account.
He was also advised to pay back N351,600 by February 10, 2023.
