Fire Razes Ecobank Head Office In Victoria Island, Lagos
There was an outbreak of fire at the generator house of Ecobank headquarters on Victoria Island, Lagos in the early hours of Tuesday morning, July 31, 2018.
Eyewitness, who shared details on Twitter, disclosed that the fire started when a “diesel tanker exploded near their generator.”
It was also gathered that the bank’s diesel tanker supplier was offloading diesel for the company when it caught fire ostensibly while the generating set was still on.
As at the time of filing this report, witnesses say the fire is yet to be put off.
The development comes less than two weeks after one of the branches of the United Bank for Africa (UBA) located along Engineering street in Victoria Island, Lagos state experienced fire outbreak.
