Tension is high at the Heritage Bank office in Calabar, where irate customers are threatening to dismantle the facility if there is any interference with their deposits.

Hundreds of customers as early as 7am on Wednesday crowded the bank’s Calabar head office entrance opposite the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Calabar office, demanding access to retrieve their money from Heritage Bank but denied entrance.

Some of the customers already in tears said they received an anonymous notice on withdrawal of the bank’s licence.

By 10am, an official from the bank addressed the angry Heritage Bank customers, asking them to go home while assuring their monies will be send to their other bank accounts linked to their Bank Verification Numbers (BVN).

The official appealed to the customers not to panic as the bank will commence the exercise on Thursday June 6, 2024.

The CBN on Monday revoked the operational license of Heritage Bank due to inability to improve it’s financial status.

The development caused panic among customers over their deposits.
