CBN debunks report of fire incident at its Head Office in Abuja

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) on Tuesday denied reports making the round that its head office building in Abuja was on fire.



According to a statement by Isaac Okorafor, Ag. Director, Corporate Communications, passersby who saw a pall of exhaust from the generator house far away from the building apparently mistook the exhaust for fire smoke.

“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 statement said.

“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.”
