The management of Access Bank Plc has reacted to the viral reports of the bank accommodating some military snipers on the roof of its head office towers in Lagos.
In a statement released by the bank, they denied giving access to the military snipers allegedly deployed to the Lekki Toll gate, an #EndSARS protest venue.
Reacting to the allegation, the Bank tweeted on Wednesday:
“We wish to address the statement by Arise TV alleging that military snipers were allowed access to our head office tower for operations at the Lekki Toll Gate area. This is absolutely untrue.
“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.
