Jaiz Bank sells N5.08bn shares to Mohammed Indinmi

Jaiz bank has sold a total  N5.08bn to billionaire, Mohammed Indimi, for an estimated N3.3bn

Mohammed Indimi is the Founder and Chairman of Oriental Energy Resources Limited, a privately-owned oil exploration and production company that he started in 1990. Hard as it is to believe, Indimi is not an overnight success story.

His newest acquisition is JAIZ bank, as he now own a larger percent of shares in the bank.   According to business post:

“Trading license holders and the investing public are hereby notified that additional 5,076,923,077 ordinary shares of 50 kobo each of Jaiz Bank Plc were today, Monday, October 4, 2021, listed on the daily official list of the Nigerian Exchange Limited (NGX).
