Photos: Explosion Kills 18 At Central Bank of Nigeria(CBN), Calabar

18 people were this morning burnt to death at the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, following an explosion that occurred this morning around 11:45am at the premises of the Bank located at Calabar Road by the Millennium Park.

It was gathered that the main edifice of the bank was the major part on fire, making many staff and visitors trapped inside the building, thereby increasing causalities.

Federal and State Fires Services were however quick to respond to calls and have put out the fire and rescued those trapped in the building. An official however said, he can’t ascertain how many people that died in the inferno, but 18 people have been confirmed dead so far.
