Three Weeks After Hoodlums Paralyzed Businesses, Banks, Commercial Centers Reopen in Iseyin
Banks and other commercial businesses have resumed after a three weeks hiatus occasioned by the destruction and vandalization visited on public and private properties by hoodlums on the 22nd of October, 2020.
The Chronicler News gathered that United Bank of Africa (UBA), ECOBANK and Union Banks started attending to customers on Tuesday which delighted most people in the town as they have been going to neighboring Oyo town to transact banking businesses.
Mr Adesoji Aderemi, a customer of UBA said the decision of the bank to close shop, pending assurance of Peace and enabling atmosphere was logical, although many customers went through difficulties to make ends meet within the period of closure of the bank.
“We had to go to Oyo town to use ATM machines because the banks here did not even load cash on their machines throughout the period of closure.
“We thank God the banks are back and we urge them not to toy with the issue of securing the banking environment and their customers.”
Meanwhile the leadership of the community organizations have hinted that renovation work on the burnt police station and other vandalized properties was underway.
The National President, Iseyin Development Union (I.D.U) Alhaji Bayo Raji disclosed that the community would not wait for the State government intervention before renovation works would commence, adding that no effort would be spared in returning police officers back to the town.
