The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has denied an online report that its headquarters was engulfed by fire Tuesday evening.
The bank said the report is a fake news.
According to Isaac Okorafor, CBN Acting Director, Corporate Communications, what passersby mistook for an inferno was just a little flame from the generator house at the headquarters.
He said although all fire engines and personnel received the alert for a fire, but it was an unusual pall of exhaust.
Okorafor added that the affected generator has been rested and normal work has been uninterrupted, while the engineers are working to rectify the issues with the generator.
