The head office of the Central Bank of Nigeria is not on fire, the apex bank clarified on Tuesday following reports.
“Reports that the Cenyral Bank of Nigeria (CBN) head office building is on fire are false. Passers by who saw a pall of exhaust from the generator house far away from the building apparently mistook the exhaust for fire smoke,” said a statement by Isaac Okorafor, the acting Director, Corporate Communications of the CBN.
“The CBN maintains a total security system that triggers safety alarms in the presence of smoke and so all fire engines and personnel received the alert only to discover that it was an unusual pall of exhaust. The affected generator has been rested and normal work has been uninterrupted, while the engineers are working to rectify the issues with the generator. We hereby assure the general public that there has been no fire at our building.
