In a notice filed by the insurance firm to the Nigerian Stock Exchange, it said it closed its office in order to comply with the Federal Government's recommendation regarding the spread of the COVID-19 virus in Nigeria.

It noted that the safety and wellbeing of customers, employees and other stakeholders was its priority.

In the meantime, the firm noted that it would shift to remote working and encouraged customers to reach out to them via alternative channels like phone calls, emails and its website.

"At AXA Mansard Insurance Plc (AXA Mansard), our top priority remains the continued safety and wellbeing of our customers, employees and other stakeholders. To this end, all AXA Mansard Welcome Centres will be closed to the public for the next two weeks, effective Wednesday, March 25, 2020.
