TheNation) The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) branch office in Jos, Plateau State has been gutted by fire.
This was confirmed on Tuesday by the apex bank on its Twitter page. “Minor fire outbreak at the Jos branch of Central bank of Nigeria, promptly contained today, April 21, 2020,” the apex bank tweeted.
This adds to the series of fire outbreaks that have hit key government offices in the country in recent days.
On April 8, fire broke out at the Treasury House, a building housing the Accountant General of the Federation’s office, exactly a week after there was another fire outbreak at the headquarters of the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) while the Independent National Electoral Commission’s office in Abuja was also gutted by fire a few days after.
