One of Nigeria’s strong Bank, Guarantee Trust Bank (GTB), is not having best of times banking with some Nigerian individuals as they continue to record various court issues.
Recall that some months back, the bank was in the news for some wrong reasons as they were involved in court tussle with the chairman of Innoson Motors, Innocent Chukwuma, with both parties using conflicting court judgements to press their claims.
While all eyes are on Innoson with GTB, another person has taken the bank to court and is claiming damages for loss of business, embarrassment and trauma in person of German base Nigerian businessman, Bartholomew Udeze.
Bartholomew claimed that GT Bank colluded with unknown persons to defraud him of the sum of 5.5 million Naira. He is therefore asking for the money to be refunded, along with 500 million in damages.
As the case is due to be heard by an Abuja High Court, it is not clear on what plans the bank is taking to avoid future occurrence as they continue to act as if all is well.
