According to a report on Sunday, bank officials have said the directive is not to be mistaken for an outright ban. Instead, the bank said it has reiterated an already imposed 2017 ban on institutions facilitating cryptocurrency transactions.

Speaking on behalf of the bank’s chief, Godwin Emefiele, Deputy Governor Adamu Lamtek said the bank had never banned cryptocurrency acctivity in the country.
