    FRAUD - COVER - UP OR ACCIDENT? LAGOS Central Bank office building gutted with fire!


    The picture above shows the building that housed the Lagos branch of the Central Bank of Nigeria office on fire Tuesday evening.


    According to information received, the inferno started at about 5:40 pm, men of the Lagos state fire service were seen at the scene trying to put out the fire which eye witnesses believed started from the top floor of the building.


    It will be recalled that the ex. CBN governor Sanusi Lamido in an interview, told the New York Times that he believes his insistence at a meeting with bank chiefs to order a special audit of all Nigerian banks to unravel how $20 billion went missing from the country's treasury led to his eventual suspension, he was suspended nine days after meeting with the bank chiefs.


    The Presidency in a press briefing  however debunked Sanusi's allegations saying he was not being truthful.


    With the Lagos branch of the CBN fire incident, and going by the manner inwhich allegations of fraudulent activities in the corridors of different regimes have been covered-up in the country over the years, with no one asking questions nor providing answers; one can only but suspect that peharps this will be the last Nigerians will be hearing about the alledged $20 billion missing funds.
