In a statement Friday by the Group Head, Marketing and Corporate Communications, Folake Ani-Mumuney, the management said: “We can confirm that the bank is cooperating with the Central Bank of Nigeria and other regulators, while the operations of the bank are not hampered or hindered in any way and are in fact running smoothly.”
