Following the fire that gutted the Obudu branch of Zenith Bank PLC, the bank has since shut down operations CrossRiverWatch authoritatively reports.

A visit to the financial institution located at the old pedestrian gate of the Federal College of Education Obudu by CrossRiverWatch for four days in a row beginning from Tuesday, November 3 to Friday, November 6, 2015 shows the bank might not offer services to customers for some time as the gates have continuously remained locked.

The bank it will be recalled as reported by CrossRiverWatch, was gutted by fire in the early hours of Saturday, October 31, 2015 with the cause of the fire unknown until now as no official statement has been issued by either the bank or relevant government authorities.

It is also unclear, the part of the bank that was gutted by the fire. However some customers say following the path of the smoke, it is close to the bulk room and the tellers point were payments and withdrawals are being made with the wall less than five metres away from the power generating plant.

The fire incident came less than a year after armed robbers attacked the bank carting away an undisclosed sum which unconfirmed information suggested was over a hundred million at least.

The bank it is clear, was badly hit as electronic services such as the Automated Teller Machine has since not been replaced after the robbery incident.
