Verify Nigeria BVN (Unavailable Currently)

Verify a Nigeria Bank Verification Number.

The regulator of this services has issued a directive that prevents non-bank third-parties from accessing the service. So fintechs without a banking license are automatically excluded. We disabled the service on 9th April 2021 pending a temporary solution.
