Contrarily to the earlier reports yesterday night regarding the Cenral Bank of Nigeria head quarters been on fire, theCBN in a statement explained that passersby who saw a pall of exhaust from the generator house far away from the building mistook the exhaust for fire smoke.
The statement reads;
“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 public that there has been no fire at our building.”
Recall, we earlier reported that the headquarters of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) in Abuja, was engulfed in flames, on Tuesday evening.
The fire which started about 2 hours ago is currently under control as officials of Federal Capital Fire Service are on ground to put off the inferno.
Apart from the Federal Fire Service that deployed two firefighting trucks in the scene of the incident, a truck belonging to Julius Berger was also sited at the apex bank headquarters.
The Assistant Comptroller, FFS, Bello Atayin who spoke to news men said that the fire started at the generator house.
He attributed the fire incident to a technical fault at the generator house, adding that the service was quick in putting it out before it got out of control.
