#BoycottGTBankOverInnoson hashtag gains momentum

The trending hashtag ‘#BoycottGTBankOverInnoson’ condemning the ‘commando’ abduction of the chairman, Innoson Motors Group, Chief Innocent Chukwuma, has continued to gain momentum as more Nigerians join campaign, reports ITRealms.

The hashtag ‘#BoycottGTBankOverInnoson’ was as a result of backlash following the commando abduction of Chief Chukwuma, on Tuesday early hours by the men of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) from his residence at Savage Crescent, GRA Enugu.

In support for this campaign some Igbo entrepreneurs have commenced closure of their both business and personal accounts with GTBank.

This, ITRealms gathered include the sale of GTBank shares at the stock market, which is anticipated to affect the bank’s trading at the Stock Exchange in the coming days as the rush to disassociate themselves with GTBank continues.

In a related development, CKN News reports that there is a sustained campaign against GTbank over arrest of the Managing Director of Nigeria's indigenous motor assembly plant, Innoson Motors, since his arrest Tuesday, thousands of  Nigerians from a section of the country have vowed to close down their accounts with the Bank, some have already done that and posted them on social media . Investigation by CKN News revealed that even the elites among them were not exempted.

According to reports, a very popular hotelier that owns a four star in Owerri is one of those who has done that.

ITRealms gathered that the message is already trending on social media, while GTBank management insists they have no hand in the arrest of Chukwuma by EFCC.

One of the concerned Nigerian declared that “the bank is lucky to steal money from a person's account and yet keep ignoring the orders of tiers of courts to pay back with interest. That is possible only in a lawless country.”

Our source noted that in the United States, the court that ordered the bank to pay the debt incurred would have used its instruments to sell the GTB'S assets and recover the money for the victim.
