The fire services from the Federal, State, UBA, Union Bank were said to have collaborated to put out the inferno.
Meanwhile a a statement from the Apex bank says, “the fire incident that occurred at its Lagos branch will not affect its documents,” adding that “the records of the bank are intact, as the bank has an effective backup of all its records, as part of our disaster recovery infrastructure.”
