COMPLAINTS & INVESTIGATIONS: Why people are running from stocks – Etinagbedia

I bought 10,000 units of former Oceanic Bank Plc and 5000 of Intercontinental Bank Plc, through Professional Stockbrokers Ltd. These stocks were supposed to be transferred to Ecobank and Access Bank respectively. In my CSCS account, there is nothing.

Even my holdings in ETI has reduced and the last bonus declared by First Bank in 2011 is not reflecting in my FBN Holding Plc, and the stockbrokers have been under suspension and have deserted their office. You can see why a lot of people are running away from stocks.(Pro. J.E Etinagbedia)

Is Access Bank giving bonus to selected shareholders?

I submitted Access Bank shares certificate with 60,000 and 12,000 units for verification in 2008 through Eurocomm Securities Limited, Makurdi branch. I want to know if Access Bank only gives bonus shares to selected shareholders because I am yet to get mine. I’ll appreciate if you‘ll help me find out from them to let me know why the units are yet to be reflected in my CSCS account. I complained severally but got no replies. (Terwase Dennis Goja)
