Troubled by the hightened security threat in Nigeria, Standard Chartered Bank has informed all its customers in Abuja that the closing hour which used to be 4pm has been reviewed upward to 3pm until further notice.
This is coming on the heels of repeated warnings by the US and Commonwealth embassies in Nigeria to their nationals of impending terror attack around Abuja.
The notice simply read; “Dear Client, please note that our branches in Abuja will be closing by 3pm until further advised. We apologise for any inconvenience. Thank you.”
It would be recalled that minister of Information and Culture , Alhaji Lai Mohammed has accused the US embassy of spreading fake news.
Alhaji Mohammed maintains that the US is not safe either, adding that there were many shootings in the last few weeks in the US with many casualties.
