Customers were asked to fill the form which the security claimed to have been printed online and made photocopies to save people from the pain of going to cyber cafes.

“We printed it online. If you cannot buy, go to the cyber cafe to download and print it. The site where you will download is pasted on the wall,” a security officer said to the customers.

It was also observed that a notice to depositors, notice to creditors, notice to the stakeholders of Heritage Bank and revocation of the banking licence were conspicuously pasted on the bank.

The notice to depositors reads: “Defunct Heritage Bank operated as an insured institution under the provisions of the Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation Act, 2023. The corporation will pay all its depositors their insured deposits up to the statutory maximum of N5,000,000.00 per depositor for Deposit Money Banks (DMBS)/mobile money subscribers. 

“However, depositors with funds in excess of the insured deposits will be paid as and when the assets of the closed bank are realised.”

The bank was shut while the collection of the form was carried out at the security post in front of the bank.
