The branches are: one in Nnewi, two in Onitsha, two in Awka and two in Enugu and would move to seal the GTB Head office next week.
According to him, Innoson will seal more of GTB bank branches nationwide to recover the N8.8 billions owed to the motor company.
“We will seal more of their properties to recover our money and from next week, we shall move to GTB head office to enforce the judgement of courts. We will sell those properties to get our money back”, he said.
