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.
