The UBA disclosed this in a publication on its website titled, ‘CBN FX defaulters’ on Friday.

The bank stated, “In compliance with the directive of Central Bank of Nigeria mandating banks to publish the names of defaulters of the forex exchange regulation.

“Based on regulatory directives, the following customers cancelled their trip and failed to return the PTA availed to them despite several mails, text messages and follow up phone calls.”

The bank also included the name of a customer who it said, “presented fake visa to apply for PTA.”
