Angry customers vandalize GTBank, Osogbo Branch over Extortion

Guaranty Trust Bank in Osogbo, the capital of Osun state was vandalised by some angry customers on Wednesday, June 16th.

It was gathered the fight started between the security officers stationed at the bank premises and some customers who came to transact with GTBank opposite Osogbo Township Stadium.

According to an eyewitness report, the trouble started when customers complained of extortion from the security officers. The customers alleged that the security men were demanding between N500 to N1000 from customers before allowing them entry into the banking hall.

Opalola said; “two suspects have been arrested and further investigation is ongoing on the matter”.
