Lagos, April 25, 2023 – The Nigeria Deposit Insurance corporation (NDIC) has commenced verification of insured depositors of Peak Merchant Bank in-liquidation towards payment of their insured sums in line with its mandate of deposit guaranty and reimbursement of depositors in the event of bank failure.

A press statement signed by its Director of Communication and Public Affairs, Bashir Nuhu, said the verification exercise would enable depositors of the defunct bank to cross-check and ascertain their account information as well as balances with the bank as at closure.

The statement said the process was a prelude to the payment of insured sums to such depositors.

”Depositors are, therefore, enjoined to visit the bank’s old premises or the Corporation’s office nearest to them with proof of account ownership and verifiable means of identification for the exercise,” it said.

The NDIC added that insured sum would be the first and mandatory payment that depositors are paid up to specified limit, if a bank fails.

Depositors are paid amounts in excess of the insured sums subsequently, as liquidation dividends from proceeds of the closed bank’s assets as realised by NDIC as liquidator.   (GBN)
