Despite BVN registration some Nigerians bank accounts of frozen
Many Nigerians have been complaining since yesterday about their
accounts being frozen by their banks despite the fact that they have
done their BVN registration. CBN spokesperson, Ibrahim Muazu, had on
Sunday November 1st said despite the expiration of the October 31st
deadline for BVN registration, customers will still be allowed to do
their registration but however their accounts will be made inaccessible
until they do their registration.
However reports from many Nigerians show that even after doing their
registration many months ago, some banks have gone ahead to deactivate
their accounts. Many say they could not withdraw from their accounts
yesterday, leaving them cash trapped.
