Aggrieved Nigerians have taken to their social media pages to call out Access bank over repeated stamp-duty charges that was deducted from their savings.
Over the weekend, Access Bank’s customers were debited repeatedly for stamp-duty charges. Meanwhile, tweeps alleged that the bank debited them before the actual date. Screenshots of debit alert for Monday, June 29 were issued on Saturday, June 27.
Some Twitter accounts have called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to investigate the issue. They promise to storm the bank, come Monday morning for explanations.

Dear @myaccessbank pls return the postal duty stamp charges you've debited from my account 3 times today!
To think the debits are backdated to Feb and March its annoying.
So what will happen when you debit me for other months. Btw I'm boycotting you guys! @cenbank #Accessbank
