Indigenous automobile maker in Nigeria, Innoson motors has been the topic of the day due to his issue with GTB Bank.
Two days ago GTB Bank released the statement below after some reports came in that the bank was to refund Innoson some amount of money after GTB lost. See GTB Bank statement below;
RE: False Reporting of Court Proceedings Concerning GTBank
Lagos Nigeria – June 11, 2018
The attention of Guaranty Trust Bank Plc (“the Bank”) has been drawn to false, mischievous and malicious statements circulating in the news and social media in respect of a purported directive by the Supreme Court of Nigeria to the Bank to make payments to one of its debtor Customers.
The Bank’s Customers and the General Public are hereby kindly urged to disregard these false statements as nothing could be further from the truth. There was no directive or Order issued by the Supreme Court of Nigeria to the Bank to make any payment to any of its debtor Customers.
The Bank as a highly responsible corporate citizen will in accordance with its culture and tradition refrain from making comments about on-going litigation matters and will continue to focus on using legal means to recover its bad debts. It must be emphasised that the Bank remains undeterred in its recovery drive against recalcitrant debtors.
We again reiterate that there is no iota of truth in the falsehood being peddled by desperate and mischievous elements and the General Public should disregard same in its entirety.
The Bank remains committed to providing best-in-class customer experience to all its valued Customers.
We thank you for your continued support and patronage.
The hashtag Innosonlied has been trending with some in support and others against.
See, we all have to learn how to own up to mistake and apologize.

Lmao so somone is paying some people to tweet #innosonlied but you’ll never see these same “social media influencers” using their influence to speak up on a National menace like “SARS”. These people will only speak when its most beneficial to them.#EndSARS

The lesson I have actually learnt from this is that, before believing anything you see on social media, be skeptical, wait for a while and give it time for the truth to come out. A lot of people/brands spread lies like Innoson just to gain sympathy & favor. #InnosonLied pic.twitter.com/yfWNbHNniF
