No fewer than four Automated Teller Machines owned by a new generation bank burst in flames and exploded destroying the machines.
Vanguard reports that the incident occurred at the an ATM gallery in front of University of Calabar, UNICAL, gate at about 9:00 am on Saturday morning.
Vanguard also learned that no customer was injured during the explosion but there was panic because the explosion causes trepidation amongst users and passers by near the University gate.
” I had to call police and fire service who responded on time and they are trying to put out the fire ,the cause is not sure but its seems it’s an electrical fault .
Vanguard gathered that policemen and fire fighters cordoned off the area and the fire service put out the fire .
Effort to speak with the bank officials proved abortive as they refused to make any comment on the incident .
