vicuze: Bank Sort code and Bank Swift code/BIC are they the same thing?

I don't think they are. If I'm correct, the sort code is what's referred to as "Routing #" here in the U.S. - branches of same banks or corresponding banks within a geographical area have same routing # for domestic ACH and different for international wires. As for SWIFT CODES, these are different. This is used to identify the Bank or financial entity where the electronic money is going into.

i have seen Citibank branch in Nigeria as far back as 2000 in warri (water resources area effurun). that was before they were forced to rename it Nigerian international bank. their lagos head office or branch is opposite radisons blu hotel along ozumba mbadiwe street in Victoria island as you go towards dodan barrack.

The only sort codes for Nigerian banks that I know of are alphanumeric. While some Nigerian banks have specific sort/swift codes for each branch, others have one sort code which all the branches of the banks use. So if you want to receive money from outside Nigeria, you just give the person your bank name, account name, account number and the sort code for the bank. When the money arrives at the head office the bank will transfer it to the specific account number.

For example Ecobank Nigeria is ECOCNGLA, First Bank is FBNINGLA etc. For more information check out this website which contains the full list:

Every branch of a bank has a different sortcode. The bank code(first three nos) is always the same but the last six numbers, differs with the branch of the particular bank
