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

Effective April 2024, the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN has instructed a “Post no Debit” restriction on all bank accounts lacking Bank Verification Number, BVN and National Identification Number, NIN.

“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.
