As at yesterday around 5:30pm, the roofs and ceilings of a hostel collapsed inside the Obafemi Awolowo University pre-degree campus situated in Moro.
The name of the hostel is BVER Suites commissioned less than two (2) years ago which accommodates the female students living inside the school campus.
The affected sections of the hostel include Suite 1 Block A, D and E and Suite 2 Block D, G & H. One of the lecture theatres (LT D) was also affected by the rain storm.
The collapse of the building left most students who were on their beds injured which led to them being rushed to a nearby hospital.
OAU Management Sends Students Home
Following the collapse of these structures, the management of Obafemi Awolowo University Centre for Distance Learning has given the students a compulsory two weeks break.
Though in the Release communicating the development, it was not stated that it has anything to do with the collapsed structures but several indications asserted that the break was given so that the collapsed structures can be reconstructed.
