There was an unfortunate fire outbreak at Bakassi Hall of Yaba College of Technology early this morning. The fire has since been put off by the College firemen.
The fire began on the fourth and topmost floor, making access to the point of attack difficult. Thank God the College fire service is equipped with an excavator, which immediately came into use.
It is surprising the kind of falsehood broadcast by Channel Television and it's cohorts that there was no water to quench the fire, based on falsity sent to them by some misguided students. The question is, where did the water used to put off the fire come from.
Meanwhile, the Rector, Dr. Margaret Kudirat Ladipo has called on the College community to remain calm while the Management finds immediate solution to the exigencies.
The College has also suspended academic activities till further notice. The College will address the Press on this incident at about noon.
