Deposit Money Banks have started sending text messages and electronic mails to customers without Bank Verification Number, asking them to come and complete the biometric registration process.
Some bank officials told a reporter on Monday that majority of customers affected by the development were mostly those with names mismatch.
Customers, who have different names order across banks were mostly affected, it was learnt.
A Punch correspondent observed on Monday that there were no queues in banking halls despite the court ruling directing the Central Bank of Nigeria and 19 Deposit Money Banks to freeze the bank accounts of customers without the BVN.
Bank officials told a correspondent on Monday that the number of customers who had no BVN was very small compared to those who had complied with the directive.
They stressed that efforts were being made to resolve names mismatch problems with their customers who had yet to get the BVN.
