Banks In Owerri Shut Due To High Taxes

Almost all commercial banks in Owerri, Imo state yesterday were shut down. I was at Diamond bank branch on the mcc/wetheral junction to cash a cheque but unfortunately for me even in all my hurry to make it to the bank, especially driving at a very dangerous speed, this mongos of a bank decided to lock shop' mehn I was 'smilingly pissed' and 'graciously annoyed'.
But after speaking to other customers I found out that the Imo State government was responsible for the shutdown. The problem stems from the fact that they were having problems with the Imo State government
who directed them to pay taxes ranging from #250million-650million to the state
government. Most banks in the state were affected by this.
Shutting down of these banks comes after the july shutdown of fuel stations over the same issue of high tax rate introduced by the state government.
Everybody is stranded right now. Hope the weekend works out ooo!!
