The fire started around 7:10 in the morning, destroying property and other valuables belonging to students in the Murtala female hostel.

Our reporter learned that a student was cooking in Room A4/1 at the time of the incident.

As of the time of writing this paper, the names of the three students could not be determined, but it is understood that part of a unit building on the plot was razed to the ground by the fire.

When the fire raged, with smoke and flames, many students in the hostel fled for safety.

When one of the injured victims was lying on the floor, he could hear the university management asking for help.

It is reported that the school’s fire brigade and security personnel responded in a timely manner to extinguish the fire and prevent the fire from spreading to other places in the dormitory. In response, the University’s Director of Broadcasting and Public Relations, Professor Danjuma Gambo, confirmed the incident in a statement issued by Maiduguri.

He said that a minor fire broke out in a room in Murtala Hall earlier in the day.

Gambo said that preliminary investigations revealed that the explosion of kerosene, suspected of adulteration, was responsible for the fire.

According to him, three students were affected and one of them was injured.

They are all being treated in a hospital in Maiduguri.

“The fire has been extinguished by the university fire brigade. The rest of the hostels was not affected by the fire.

“This unfortunate incident is regrettable, especially considering the management’s recent efforts to enforce fire safety regulations in student hostels,” Prof. Gambo said.
