Following the fire outbreak that razed the first floor of Bakassi Hostel in Yaba College of Technology (Yabatech), the management of the institution has suspended every academic activity, including ongoing examinations. Charles Oni, the institution’s spokesperson said this in a statement released on Wednesday.
"All examinations and lectures, especially scheduled for today (Wednesday) have been put on hold while the College attends to the exigency”, Oni said.
"The Management regrets the misguided and outright falsehood on the social media and calls to certain radio stations that there was no water on campus to quell the fire.
"The truth is that firemen needed an excavator to attend to the fire, which the College provided promptly", he said.
"Meanwhile, the Rector, Dr. Margaret Ladipo has called on the College community to remain calm as the Management finds ways to soothe the pains inflicted by the accident."
