Just few days after the Maths Department block of the Faculty of Science, University of Lagos was disfigured by fire, an off-campus hostel of some students of the Auchi Polytechnic, Edo State, has also been consumed by fire.
The inferno destroyed properties worth millions of naira. Lost to the fire were computer sets, students’ files, electronics and money among other valuables.The students around said that the fire incident is assumed to have resulted from a surge in the public electricity supply by the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN).
