Sacked workers of Enterprise Bank on Thursday and Yesterday Friday 17th crippled operations at the Bank's head quarters located at Ahmadu Bello Way, Victoria Island, over what they termed 'unlawful sack' and unpaid benefits and compensations.
The sacked staffers started the protest after they learnt that the bank was in the process of being sold to new investors and they feared the outstanding benefits will not be paid once a new management takes over. The sacked workers threatened to occupy other branches of the bank if their demands are not met.
Enterprise Bank later released a statement, insisting that no staff will suffer as a result of the transfer of service to a new owner.
'The management of Enterprise Bank Limited (EBL) has assured all staff of the First Spring Franchise Services (FSFS) Limited, a subsidiary of the bank that the planned sale of the company to a new owner in line with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) directive does not in any way portend any problem for the staff.
