It has just been reported that the Bakassi Female Hostel in Yabatech campus was on fire earlier today.

YABATECH’s spokesperson, Dr. Charles Oni, in a statement on Wednesday said, “all examinations and lectures, especially scheduled for today (Wednesday) have been put on hold while the College attends to the exigency.”

He added, “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.


“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.”
