BREAKING: CBN To Freeze Bank Accounts Without BVN, NIN From April 2024

Bank accounts with no Bank Verification Number (BVN) and National Identification Number (NIN) will all be freezed by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

The “Post no Debit” is said to be effective, starting from April 2024.

“Post No Debit” is a term used to describe a restriction imposed by banks on specific accounts, preventing customers from making withdrawals, transfers, or any other debits from their accounts.

This measure effectively freezes the funds in the account, rendering it inaccessible for the duration of the restriction.

The CBN’s directive was contained in a circular issued by the apex bank and sent to all deposit money banks on Friday.

The Central Bank also stated that all the BVN or NIN attached to and/or associated with AL accounts/wallets must be electronically revalidated by January 31, 2024.

The circular was jointly signed by the Director, Payments System Management Department, Chibuzo Efobi, and Director, Financial Policy and Regulation Department, Haruna Mustapha.

Details soon…
