There was a fire incident at the Lagos State head office of Zenith Bank Plc Thursday.

It was gathered that the fire broke out at the 84, Ajose Adeogun Street, Lagos Island, head office of the bank.

Reports said the fire started at the store room located in a corner of the building on the Island.

An official of the bank said the fire was put under control and the activities of the organisation went on as usual such that many people in the building were unaware there had been a fire.

Confirming the incident, spokesperson of the bank, Victor Edoji, said that the fire did not affect the operations of the bank.

“It is all just exaggeration. There is nothing, really.

“We are all in the office and some of the staff did not even know until they saw it on social media. I don’t know what caused the fire but I know it has been put out.”

Also, spokesperson of the Lagos office of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Ibrahim Farinloye, noted that “the fire outbreak at Zenith Bank building has been put out. It affected only a room.”
