The Central Bank of Nigeria( CBN) yesterday debunked report that the bank’s head office building was on fire,
According to the apex bank’s Ag Director, Corporate Communications, Isaac Okorafor that the report was not true and should be disregarded.
He explained that passers by who saw a pall of exhaust from the generator house far away from the building apparently mistook the exhaust for fire smoke.
While assuming that “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 the has been no fire at our building.”
