Staff, customers escape fire outbreak at Eco Bank


Staff, Customers and Visitors at the Ecobank head office along Ahmadu Bello, Legico, Victoria Island Lagos ran for their dear lives following a fire outbreak in the bank this morning.

When The Guardian visited the bank, there was a huge thick smoke billowing in the air while staff, visitors, customers and passers-by were seen standing at a safe distance outside the bank.

Policemen from the Victoria Island police station barricaded the road with their patrol vans leading to the bank.

A source at the bank said: ” we heard the fire alarm and we all ran out of the banking hall. I learnt the fire outbreak was caused by the diesel generating set. The generating set is on fire but has not spread to the building”

A fire service tanker was seen rushing to the scene of the fire incident at about 8.30am.
