GTB fires back
Innoson Lied, The Alleged Judgement Under Circulation Does Not Exist – GTBANK
The Guaranty Trust Bank has described as false, mischievous and malicious the story being circulated by the Media Aide of Innoson Group, Cornel Osigwe through which claimed that the Supreme Court ordered the bank to pay the CEO of Innoson Group, Innocent Chukwuma a total of fourteen billion naira. The bank further advised the public to ignore such story and reiterated its resolve never to comment on a matter that is still before a court of law.
Read the full statement as released by the Bank below:
The attention of GTBank has been drawn to false, mischievous and malicious statements circulating in the news and social media in respect of a purported directive by the Supreme Court of Nigeria to the Bank to make payments to one of its debtor Customers.
