Recently, the Zenith Bank client shared a post about the refund on her Twitter page.



Agim reported that on that Monday, the bank contacted her to provide an update on the refunded money.


“After the event, they had to put my account on pause, so I didn’t get any alerts,” the user said. I was told to visit the bank the next day,” she recalled.


“They had credited my account with N3,239,400 around 7.30 pm on Monday,” the customer said. “My account statement was printed when I got to the bank.”


She claimed to have discovered that Access, one of the two banks to which the funds were transferred, still held the remaining N800,500.
