Zenith Bank has returned N52,000 out of the N200,000 that vanished from the bank account of Jerry Joshua Audu, a corps member in Enugu State.

The money was reversed four days after FIJ published a story on how Audu’s money had been hanging between Zenith Bank and Wema Bank since July 2022.

From Audu’s Zenith Bank account, an unknown person had transferred N100,000 to a Zenith Bank account and another N100,000 to a Wema Bank account.

Audu had to obtain two court orders that same month to swiftly process the reversal, yet the money was not refunded.

Speaking with FIJ, Audu said he received the part-payment on Monday, November 14.

“I received a reversal of 52,000 from Zenith Bank. But my account is still on restriction, so I don’t have access to the money. I contacted the manager, and I need to go a Zenith Bank branch to unfreeze my account.

“Regarding the court order to Wema Bank, my account officer said I should email it to Wema Bank. So, I will do that today (Wednesday).

“Thank you very much. I know it was because of you Zenith Bank reversed part of the money.”
