A Notary Public has directed the Guaranty Trust Bank to reverse a money wrongly transferred from Kuda Bank to GT Bank.
The order, which was sighted by TheNigeriaLawyer, is dated 26th May, 2021 between one Deborah Oluwabukola Babatunde and Guaranty Trust Bank PLC.
The order states that application for the transaction reversal was made orally for “An order of the office of the Notary Public praying for the reversal of the sum of N5551,250,00 (Five Hundred and Fifty One Thousand Two Hundred and Fifty Naira) only wrongly/erroneously paid by Deborah Oluwabukola Babatunde – Account No: 2000632834 via Kuda Bank into account no:0023457325, with the name- Ofoedu Gabriel Chikubuikem GTB Account instead of Account No: 0032457325, Name – Arisokwu Charity Amarachi GTB Account.”
The Notary Public, therefore, orders that the said sum be reversed.
“It is hereby ordered that the sum of N551,250.00 (Five Hundred and Fifty-One Thousand Two Hundred and Fifty Naira) only wrongly/erroneously paid by Deborah Oluwabukola Babatunde Account No:2000632834 via Kuda Bank into account 0023457325, Name – OFOEDU GABRIEL CHUKWUBUIKEM GTB be reversed back to Account No: 2000632834 belonging to Deborah Oluwabukola Babarurde.”
The above order has raised controversy as to whether notary Public h as power to make such order apart from court of law.
