Three Zenith Bank Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) on Tafawa Balewa road in Nasarawa Local Government Area of Kano State were destroyed by fire on Tuesday.
The State Fire Service confirmed the incident in a statement issued by the Public Relations Officer, Alhaji Saminu Abdullahi, on Tuesday in Kano.
According to Abdullahi, the fire department received a distress call at 12:06 p.m. from one Ghali Muhammad reporting a fire outbreak at the ATM points.
“On receiving the information, we quickly sent some of our personnel and fire fighting vehicles to the scene of the incident at about 12:11 p.m, to quench the fire so as not to affect other ATMs,” he said.
Abdullahi further stated that three ATMs were completely razed by the inferno, while the other three were slightly burnt.
He attributed the incident to electric spark from the ATM machines. (NAN)
