Bank workers under the aegis of the National Union of Banks, Insurance and Financial Institutions (NUBIFIE), have warned Nigerians to brace up for a total lockdown of all banks doors following the failure of efforts they have made in effecting the release of their president, Mr. Danjuma Musa.

Musa had been in Police detention over his complications in an alleged abuse of about N30 million.

But the union in a statement signed by its General Secretary, Muhammed Sheik, who reacted to a publication penultimate Monday, said the information were “false untrue and fallacious”.

NUBIFIE therefore averred that it would soon give a date for the resumption of a nationwide strike if the Nigeria Police fails to release its President, Danjuma Musa, who was arrested and detained since last week.

Sheikh had explained in a press conference that the union’s president has remained incommunicado since he was taken away by some SARS members to Area F Police Station since May 11.

He added further that “If it was an arrest, he will be allowed to speak to his lawyer or family members. On May 12, when we found him in Area F, Ikeja, the police accused him of stealing and threat to life”.

“Later, that same day, Musa called that he has been flown to federal SARS in Abuja and till today, members of the union have called but his phones cannot be reached,’’ Sheikh said.
