₦50 Stamp Duty On Bank Deposits & Transfers Are Illegal - FHC Asaba by Racoon(m): 5:41pm On Dec 11, 2020
The Asaba Division of the Federal High Court has declared as illegal all ongoing stamp duty deductions by Nigerian banks. 

Justice Nnamdi Dimgba said the Central Bank of Nigeria and all banks should immediately stop further collections of stamp duties from Nigerians because there was no provision for such taxes under the Stamp Duties Act.

The judgement came on December 9 in a case filed against the CBN, Zenith Bank and the attorney-general by Rupert Irikefe, a businessman.

Mr. Irikefe was also awarded N500,000 in damages for the inconveniences he suffered when deductions were imposed on his bank account starting in January 2016.

Nigerian banks have been charging N50 as stamp duties on transactions above N1,000 across the country, a controversial policy that has long been criticised by citizens who saw it as exploitative and one-sided. The banks were asked to impose the charges by the CBN.

Mr. Dimgba also said the banks should suffer additional damages because they failed to comply with a previous ruling on the matter by the Court of Appeal in 2014, continuing to charge stamp duties on transactions despite being aware of the appellate court position on the matter.

If you want to know how big this banks extort from their customers, just go through your transaction history for the past 6 months.

They make you believe that buying airtime from your account is free. Lol, they charge unseen #4 anytime you recharge from your account.




6 months before the expiration of your ATM card, access bank would debit you for a new card. But when you get there after the old one must have expired, they will charge you again for atm that you already paid for. Na so I change am for one of their customers care. I asked her how possible it is for them(access bank) bank to make a new card for me if they had not charged me for it.

The banks are already making a killing with the fractional reserve system they operate. Sadly, greed can never be satisfied hence the stamp duty. When the day of the rope comes bankers will be the first in line.
