According to Honorable Justice R. B Haastrup who delivered the judgment on the 19th of November 2020 in a suit made this known to newsmen. 

According to reports, While the seal up of Fidelity Bank was executed in some of its branches in Abuja, a top bank manager said the process of paying off the debts has begun.

One of the Creditors, Aondohemba Agba Injo who besieged the bank premises confirmed that the bank is trying to play a fast one on them by means of delay. 

Sources however, revealed that while the bank is slow in the process is because they want to buytime to see if they could obtain a Supreme Court for stay of execution.
