The CBN said it 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.
Below is the full statement:
There is No Fire Incident at CBN Head Office
Reports that the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN)
head office building was on fire is false.
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 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.
