According to the statement issued on Monday, by the bank, it said its attention had been drawn to some unethical practices being perpetrated by individuals disguising as its staff or agents, demanding and receiving money from unsuspecting members of the public purportedly to secure COVID-19 Targeted Credit Facility or the AGSMEIS Loan.

The statement read: “The attention of the management of NIRSAL Microfinance Bank has been drawn to some unethical practices being perpetrated by individuals disguising as its staff or agents, demanding and receiving money from unsuspecting members of the public purportedly to secure COVID-19 Targeted Credit Facility or the AGSMEIS Loan.

“We also wish to inform the general public who may have been scammed by these unscrupulous people to lodge a complaint on our Whistleblowing portal by sending us an email on WHISTLEBLOWER AT (whistleblower@nmfb.com.ng).”

It, therefore, warned members of the public against falling prey to such people, adding that the COVID-19 Targeted Credit Facility being disbursed by it on behalf of the CBN is a loan and not a grant as beneficiaries must pay back with interest and urged that those who are in any doubt to contact 09010020656 or visit www.nmfb.com.ng.
