Polytechnic suspends academic activities following fire outbreak
The management of Yabatech has announced the suspension of academic activities after the fire outbreak.
The authorities have subsequently announced that all lectures and examination have been put on hold, Daily Post reports.
A statement by Dr Charles Oni, YABATECH spokesman, said, “By this notice, all examinations and lectures, especially scheduled for today (Wednesday) have been put on hold while the College attends to the exigency.
“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.”
Earlier reports revealed that the fire broke out early on Wednesday, November 23.
Although properties belonging to the female students were lost in the inferno, thankfully, no lives were lost in the incident.
Daily Post reports that the fire was eventually put out by men from the Fire Service.
