On Thursday, CBN said it has so far recovered over ₦60 billion from erring banks as excessive charges imposed on customers and has equally returned the same amount to the affected customers.

The CBN Director of Corporate Communications, Mr. Isaac Okoroafor said the recovery of the excess bank charges was made possible through the bank’s Consumer Protection Department.
