We are deeply saddened to hear about the unfortunate loss of innocent lives yesterday at the Lekki Toll. We pray that the souls of the innocent rest in peace.
The video shared on Arise TV featured an employee of the bank conducting routine maintenance at the Tower location. It is unfortunate that this was reported as a sniper without any proof.

GTBank suffers mass staff resignation
The IT division at GTBank has suffered a continual decrease in personnel within the last six months. It has caused a significant technical lacuna and work overload for current employees. Reports reaching 1st News have it that GTBank has been slow in promoting its staff; inadvertently triggering a wave of exits into the labour market which had attractive offers for their talent.
The shortage in manpower is bringing about increased workload; and mounting pressure on the remaining IT employees.
One staff said, “I was handling one application then it doubled as a result.”
Another one also: “There’s a particular team where three members left in the space of one month. Now, four people’s responsibilities are being juggled by one person.”
And yet another staff said, “The pressure is crazy. One person is doing three people’s jobs all in the name of efficiency. That’s why our cost to income ratio will always be the lowest in the industry.”
An undisclosed source said the frequent loss of experienced workers without commensurate hiring resulted in gaps in technical capabilities.
He said: “The application I am managing was handled by two people; but my partner has gone to join another team. If I’m leaving now, a new person can’t cram; and get a good grip of everything in my handover note within 3 weeks. We simply need more people on the team!”
This gap is often reflected when there is a service downtime towards the end of the month caused by server overload. During this period, transaction volume increases due to salary payments; and other month-end payments; leading to more pressure on existing resources.
